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!

    Frankly, if I were nude, so large as to affect the gravitational pull of planets AND stuck outside the breathable part of the atmosphere, I’d be pouting a bit myself.

    Do you think Penguin would be interested in a story about sexy female alien penguins?

    It would appear the cover is worthy of the contents:

    This book actually won a Hugo Award in 1965. Sam Jordison, whose review is linked to above, called it “crap by any standard” and “not just bad, it’s dire.”

    I’ll defend Lieber a tad — I disliked this book but LOVED the experimental The Big Time which also won a Hugo — a Hugo he deserved….

    And everyone thought it was harmful gases that made the hole in the ozone when it was just a giant cat-lady using the earth as a scratching post!

    Fritz Leiber was a Furry?!?

    Checking Alessandra’s link:

    “Why on earth did Fritz Leiber win the Hugo?
    Boring characters, sludgy writing, sex scenes with alien cats … ”

    Oh, maybe that’s why. A.R., I’m afraid you are correct.
