Bibliomancer Comments: My card must be the Queen of D-Cups.
Published 1987

You might remember this from here

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.42 out of 10)

    That contraption isn’t so much a chariot for the lady as it is a wheelchair for the dragon.

    So they had flying cars back then – WHY NOT NOW?!

    Man: Hey, baby! Wanna climb my oak tree and light my fire? Come on, let’s play “heal the dragon”… You know, grow the stumpy..?

    Goodness! There’s no muscle tone in her arms at all!

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    There was a blonde lady of Thrace
    Who leased out a dragon, and raced
    Her volante up hills
    Past trees and down rills
    Ensuring the clergy stayed chased!

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    She’s riding it backwards. A real dragster would have the flames coming out the rear.

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    This wheeled dragon thing blows my mind.

    I mean, if it doesn’t stay in that exact position, it doesn’t work at all. Bring it down a little bit and the dragon is on all fours, outstretched claws digging into the earth. Maybe the top half of the dragon is supposed to be alive? But apparently if so the creature can apparently function with a hollowed-out lower abdomen.

    Don’t even get me started on the wings.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    @Biblio: That’s where my flames are.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Tom – You have flames coming out of your exhaust pipe? Better not wear pants.

  10. fred Says:

    I’m thinking the monk isn’t looking at the dragon.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom, Biblio: that must be sensible advice, she’s taken it…and perhaps the monk is sans trousers as well.

    “Did you hear Brother Anthony’s latest ‘revelation’? The one about the flaming dragon chariot and the half-naked lady…? I’ll bet you he found that vision at the bottom of a wine glass!”

    Leaving the dragon chariot and the Monk in a tree aside, there’s still a lot wrong with this cover. That oversized Torc she’s wearing cannot be comfortable (and the chain mail loincloth must chafe something horrible)! Also look at her earrings, either she’s got a really large ear, or two of her earrings are attached to her hair, though maybe hair piercings are ‘in’ this season?

    Also, WHAT IS THE NAME OF SPACE SHEEP IS SHE STANDING ON? Where can those legs find anything like a stable purchase?

    Oh heavens I just noticed the dragon only appears to have one wing. Even for Piers Anthony this is a bad cover.

  15. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    So this is how dragsters started out.

  16. Anna T. Says:

    The expression on the face of the guy in the tree is the understandable confusion of someone who has no idea how this woman’s dragon-chariot hybrid is supposed to work, and how she manages to drive it with stick-arms.

  17. Jen Says:

    I’m pretty sure that if this card comes up in your tarot reading, you’re required by law to evacuate the building.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Monk’s thought bubble:
    Well, they didn’t prepare me for this when I was back there in seminary school. Petition the Lord with prayer? More like petition the Lord with hair. I just pray my dangling—cross—will protect me from she-demons.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Spoilers! She didn’t pass under the branch…

  20. Revellion Says:

    Poor old dragon must have been hit by a chariot. A very big chariot. Cheers to the quick witted motorist who rushed him to the vet, where his back half was replaced with…..a chariot. Oh,cruel irony.
