    That’s a long drop if he falls in. Isn’t he facing the wrong way?

    1) That is a terrible title. Maybe the worst title in all of sci-fi-dom.

    2) That surfboard’s shape is all wrong, even assuming that things are supposed to work different iiiiiiin spaaaaaaaace.

    Given what the book really is (written in 1905-totally ripped of by Burroughs for his John Carter/Mars books), this cover makes no sense. Marvel even did him in the 70’s.

    This guy is demeaning the art of space surfing with his tacky gear! No one wears bright red hazmat suits and paints their board to look like an ugly rug unless they have absolutely no taste.

    And his board’s rectangular. The horror.

    Isn’t the problem not that he doesn’t know how to ride a surfboard, but that he doesn’t know how to take a magic carpet ride?

    It takes real bravery to go near salt water after your skin’s been removed.

    It’s a quest… It’s a quest for fun.
