It’s Mrs Bagpuss! Cover the eyes of the mice on the mouse organ!
Frankly, if I were nude, so large as to affect the gravitational pull of planets AND stuck outside the breathable part of the atmosphere, I’d be pouting a bit myself.
Imagine the size of the litter tray…
[sings] “I’m a teapot, short and stout … well, not so much short and stout as a thousand kilometers tall and distractingly lithe … but, wait, where was I?”
Do you think Penguin would be interested in a story about sexy female alien penguins?
It would appear the cover is worthy of the contents:
This book actually won a Hugo Award in 1965. Sam Jordison, whose review is linked to above, called it “crap by any standard” and “not just bad, it’s dire.”
I’ll defend Lieber a tad — I disliked this book but LOVED the experimental The Big Time which also won a Hugo — a Hugo he deserved….
And everyone thought it was harmful gases that made the hole in the ozone when it was just a giant cat-lady using the earth as a scratching post!
… what a wonderful world this would be.
Helena Bonham Carter should star in the movie version.
Which way is the light coming from?
Fritz Leiber was a Furry?!?
Checking Alessandra’s link:
“Why on earth did Fritz Leiber win the Hugo?
Boring characters, sludgy writing, sex scenes with alien cats … ”
Oh, maybe that’s why. A.R., I’m afraid you are correct.
Furries: ruining everything since god knows when
Guess it is cold in space.
“She wore, an itsy bitsy yellow-striped…..umm fur?”
Ai iz on Yur Planet, Striking a Poze…
