    Crowds for the 2258 Thanksgiving Day Parade were underwhelming.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    After reading B’mancer’s comment, I misread the blurb as, ‘Those Mind Readers Hated Urine.’

  3. Ray P Says:

    Fuck esp, lets go bowling.

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Ray P – Bad idea. The Angry Espers always roll a perfect game. They never leave a pin standing.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—it’s hard to pee straight in zero gravity. That accounts for the wall color at least.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The Angry Espers are most angry in the evening, when they are at Angry Espers Vespers.

  7. THX 1138 Says:

    They hated Earthmen… but they loved the Earthlaydeez.

    They hate us for our impeccable fashion sense.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Yes! But they do it quietly. More like Angry Espers Vespers Whispers.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Does an angry Esper start ranting? If so, in what language?

    (three… two… one…)

    Esperanto.

    I’ll get me coat.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—it’s all made worse by the fact that their clothing doesn’t breathe either. This contributes to their quiet evening anger when it is hard to concentrate on their prayers. It’s a classic example of Angry Espers Polyesters Vespers Whispers.

  12. Anna T. Says:

    BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Not only that but when they do whisper you notice their speech impediments. The Angry Espers Polyesters Vespers Lispers Whispers.

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    Then their clothing turns rank and you can really smell it when the wind starts blowing from a certain direction.

    The Angry Espers Polyesters Fester Westward as Vespers Lispers Whisper.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’mancer, @Tom Noir—there’s only one place left to go, Good Sirs. It’s time for

    THE ESPERS THAT CAME TO SARNATH!

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I’m no mind-reader, but these guys don’t seem all that mad. Alternate title?
    THE SLIGHTLY MIFFED ESPERS

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    “These Mind-Readers Hated Cthulhu!”

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Use the unique powers of the Angry Espers to destroy the greedy pigs’ defences!

  19. Perry Armstrong Says:

    BIG BROTHER IS FLOATING

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    The mind Biggles.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The Mind-Readers hated Earthmen, doing the same job every day at work, disco, and clean shaven surfaces.

    THE ANGRY HIPSTERS

    That is all.

    FINE! THE ANGRY HIPSTERS’ ESPER POLYESTER TESTER THAT FESTERED WESTWARD TO SARNATH AS VIPER VESPER LISPERS WHISPERED ‘ALFRED BESTER’ IN ESPERANTO.

    …I need a vacation…

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—thanks for being you 😉

    boo on blue-sacked love

    Brolly Jiggled

  24. HappyBookworm Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Thank you. If you didn’t bring in Sarnath already, I would have to do it.

    With the closed eyes and the floating necklace on the guy in the foreground, it kind of looks like he fell asleep in zero gee…just starting to drift off in both senses of the word.

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “No! I won’t go psi-bowling with you!”

  26. RachelJ Says:

    *sigh* Such a depressingly lacklustre effort, in all areas. Drearily literal too, I suspect. I can only yearn for the inevitable Baen re-issue (edited by Eric Flint)-

    Title: “WAR OF THE ESPERS!”
    Blurb: “In the far future, man’s mind was the battlefield… and so was the real world!”
    Quote: “Keep on $&$#%%% writing you #%}{}#% or I’ll $&&@ $&@@ you!!!!” -Orson Scott Card.

    It will be glorious.
