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: 6.08 out of 10)

    Before My Little Pony, making Huorn fabulous, a papercraft book.

  2. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Look at that talon! Maybe we need an “above you” tag?

  3. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I immediately concede that there are many sharper eyes than mine in GSS world. Yet I defy you all to make linear perspective sense out of that blue creature’s leg alignment!

  4. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Sequel: Huon of These Days

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B.Chiclitz – HaHa ↑ ↑ ↑

    Prequel: Huon Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

    Well, it makes a change from unicorns. Sorry, UNICORNS!

  7. THX 1138 Says:

    Surely the sequel would be Huon More Time?

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    @THX1138: HUONICORNS!

  9. Ray P Says:

    Huon – a noble gas invented by Norton.

  10. THX 1138 Says:

    These comments have been a Huonormous success.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    This is so damn addictive….

    Huon is the Loneliest Number

    Another Huon Bites the Dust

    Huon Toke Over the Line

    Ok, Ok I have no Huon and I must pun! I’m done. Huon and done, that is.

    Not to be confused with Huan the Hound of Valinor.

    Review. More of a synopsis. Huon be a busy busy boy.

    He’s got a blue Shetland pony with an enlarged head and rainbow dragon’s wings.

    He also seems to have the tattered vestiges of a Laura Ashley curtain handing from his waist, which would trip him if he ever got into a sword-fight.

    I contend, therefore, that this cover was based on original tableau by an eight year old girl in 1981 and that the sequel has a Cindy doll driving her brother’s Palitoy tank over a poster of Shakin’ Stevens.

  14. Ray P Says:

    The seventies had a Lone Ranger doll complete with horse. Huon could be repurposed Tonto.

  15. Anna T. Says:

    He’s probably wearing the fabulous cape to distract from the poor winged horse’s deformed legs.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    He’s thinking, “wait, did I turn off the oven?”

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Look out, Huon! The planet Jupiter is flying straight at your head!’

    ‘Wha…?’

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The cover was of course recycled from from the album “Classic Rock Vol.6 — Performed By the London Symphony Orchestra”, released by K-Tel in 1980.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: I had that one as a gift from my parents. My favourite was ‘Born to Be Wild, But Not As Wild As My Horse’.
