    That is undoubtedly more ungdomsböck than B. Wahlström’s previous offering.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    Which one’s Ronnie again?

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    His clothing and stance don’t suggest fighting to me. The spectral figure in the background is the Spirit of Disco.

    Come on, just try to look at that picture without thinking of ‘Do The Hustle’ by Van McCoy now I’ve said it.

    Ja, ladies önd gentlemen, that is indeed SWEDISH sciönce fictiön.

    Ve are very pröud öf the Rönnie Clark bööks.
    Alsö löök för these öther exciting Rönnie Clark Agent X titles:

    – Rönnie Clark and The Mööse Mutant
    – Rönnie Clark and The Mystery öf The Radioactive Lutefisk
    – Rönnie Clark and The Martian 5-Mile Ski Death Race
    – Rönnie Clark Vs. The Killer Meatballs

    Before Tony Rex grew wings and started doing experiments, he worked a short stint as disco dance instructor.

  6. Rachel J Says:

    Interesting. In the comments for “A Time for Dragons”, there was some speculation as to how one would go about fighting a T-Rex hand-to-hand (a feat which also occurs in that book). Apparently the trick is–
    1. Pick a very small one
    and
    2. Stand on a hillock.

    ‘Course, if you win it’ll just be back with lasers, so what’s the point, really?

  7. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ronnie’s an intergalactic surgeon. In this book, he operates an ulcer on a surly lizard.

  8. fred Says:

    That dinosaur looks way overweight. I think I know what happened to Agents A through W.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    That blank figure in the background must be Agent Y. The cover artist either ran out of interest or ran out of paint.

    “I’m going to punch you so hard, your ghost is going to go back in time and start haunting this place before your death! BAM!”

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The google-eyes and the ridiculous attempt to look badass give it away: it’s

    THE DRAKÖDLAN THAT CAME TO SARNATH!

  12. THX 1138 Says:

    “Rar! You’ve seen Women in Love, haven’t you? Let’s do this thing!”

  13. Rags Says:

    Where can MMA go in the future? Man vs Dino my friends!!

  14. Rags Says:

    “In this corner standing 12.3 metres. Weighing in at a plump 7.2 metric tons. From the tar pits of the Cretaceous period.

    The king of carnivores;
    The Jurassic Disaster;
    The terrible tyrannosaurid;
    The sultan of stomp……TONY REX!!!”

  15. Jeff Vader Says:

    At a closer look the tail in the bottom half of the picture actually seems to belong to a second dragonlizard, out of frame to the left.

    Which means Ronnie sure is lucky to have his spectral friend – otherwise this would be an uneven fight.

  16. Bibliomancer Says:

    Happy Boxing Day to all my Commonwealth friends!

    Named, I imagine, after the quaint custom of having the servants bumfight for possession of their master’s hand-me-down clothes and toys which had been replaced with yesterday’s lavish Xmas gifting. Remember: Marquess of Queensberry Rules!

  17. fearofmusic Says:

    that is not a dinosaur
    it is all wrong
    four fingers on forelimbs
    impossible upright posture
    it must be magical
    or an alien

  18. Sophaloaf Says:

    As Julie Andrews (upper left corner) overlooks the entire operation.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    At first I was worried about the wattle on the (non-) dinosaur.

    Then I realized that ‘RONNIE CLARK AGENT X’ is an anagram for ‘A T. REX NECK RAN LONG’, and that the artist diluted the paint with too much turpentine again.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: My favorite is the timeless classic Ronnie Clark och den Norska dåre och tölp från Danmark.

  21. anon Says:

    “Come here, baby. Gimme some tongue.”

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ronnie: “One, two, three — Rock smashes scissors! I win!”
    Dino: “RAARRRGH!!”
    Ronnie: “Um… best out of three?”

  23. anon Says:

    “Oh yeah, mister lizard? Well, MY fish was THIS big.”

  24. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Ronnie: “Ok, Mr. Rex. I know you have the microfilm. Hand it over. You don’t want to see me upset!”

  25. rev Says:

    Cliff Richard really IS that old.
