And he's lining up for the stab... and he's off!Click for full image

MisterBOB Comments: I imagine if this art was released as a poster, thousands of ten year girls would buy it, because they know that real magic glows, all the time, day or night.
Published 1998

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse. Far, far worseInteresting, but I would still read it in publicMiddling: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lamé picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    When that unicorn picks up speed, she’s going to be in big trouble. BEHIND YOU!!!

  2. lilac Says:

    This is actually a really good book! But there’s definitely crossover in the Researched Arthurian and the Glowing Unicorn markets…

    This is what happens if you pay too much attention to your phone. She’ll be a menace as a pedestrian.

    The Gaussian Damosels!

    I have architectural concerns: if the dog-leg turret on the far right of the castle is of sufficient size to make the stairway negotiable and the room big enough to do anything with and warrant this weird addition, then the bridge between wings must be too steep for any horse to surmount. It’d ten ten minutes in an SUV, more if it snowed or got muddy.

    It’s something like 30 degrees at each end. Getting up it in a carriage would be hard enough but then the descent is so precipitous you’d either flatten the horse or veer wildly, fall and drown.

    Three Damn Osels? I only see one damn osel. And what looks like a radioactive albino anteater.

    Whoever the agent for ‘The’ was sure got his client first class treatment. Private box, separate font, your own piece of scroll work. I suspect blackmail or bribery with substances of an illegal nature.
    Is that a smiley face or a moon and three stars?

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: I don’t know what to call them, but we’ve seen them here before.

  10. Rags Says:

    This is the book night joggers strap to themselves so cars can see them.

  11. SF Strangelove Says:

    “Warmly romantic” is it? So that’s not glow, that’s heat haze.

  12. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I might actually try to read this, if I get new glasses. At any rate, I’m up for some warmly romantic haunting. Haven’t seen that since Patrick Swayze died.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    It’s the Chris Christie Children’s Hour!

    “Once upon a time, bada-bing, there was a handsome… husky… prince, and he had a magic bridge between two enchanted castles. Then one day, an evil wizard shut down the bridge, bada-bing, and blamed it on the prince…”

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Before the flood, it was one really long castle.

  15. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    “Warmly romantic…haunting” – huh?
