Robert N Comments: Strangely enough a terrible cover may actually be the reason to buy it.
Published 1969

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: 7.97 out of 10)

    It’s Stick Man!

  2. The Tag Wizard Says:

    Especially liking that the t-rex’ arms are essentially MAN ARMS

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    OK, that’s it, these cargo cults are getting out of hand.

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    Jesus is on his lunch break. Will return to his crucifixion in a half hour.

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    Rejected cover for the little known children’s book, “Curious George Steals The Moon.”

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    It’s one of those covers where I’m thinking its not THAT bad, and then I notice T-Rex has man-arms and give it an extra star.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I think they modeled the dinosaur on Iguanodon…I think…it’s a little hard to tell.

    @Bibliomancer: it’s not like he would have had far to go, they put him right in the middle of the salad!

  8. Tom Hering Says:

    It’s a nice cover in every way. Not to everyone’s taste, certainly, but still.

  9. Jaouad Says:

    “One morning, when Jesus woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed on his cross into a horrible vermin.”

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @ Dead Stuff – I didn’t notice that. Tell the mossy creatures to hang around. Jesus is paying a visit to the little savior’s room and will be back up on those logs in 5 minutes.

    A breathtaking adventure in mind travel!!!

    Hey look everyone… I’m mind travelling as I type!!! WOooooooo!

  12. Michael Toland Says:

    I agree with JuanPaul – it doesn’t seem that bad until you notice the little things. I also have to wonder about the title, which is perfectly fine…except for the exclamation point, which suddenly makes it seem like a children’s book. Maybe it is.

    Having said all that, I’d pick it up off the rack if I saw it, at least to read the synopsis.

    T.Rex is wondering “who took my saxophone?”

    Very good comments on this one! I doff my hat to you all.

    Here we go:

    G.W. BUSH MOVES THROUGH HIS POLITICAL AFTERLIFE LIKE A PHANTOM — BUT CANNOT ESCAPE THE GHOSTS OF HIS OWN WARS.

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is it a cover painting, or a photo of Salvador Dali’s tomb?

  18. FearöfMüsic Says:

    Yet another parade of weirdness. And for some inexplicable reason I want to know where they are going. I want to go with..NO!
    Simple question though. What the heck is the guy with the trenchcoat and fedora doing with this bunch?
    And you could tag this BEHIND YOU! AND YOU! AND YOU! Etc..

  19. FearöfMüsic Says:

    Silly me, just noticed the time. Obviously, it’s Miller time, at the bar where all the Englush meet. They used to deink in the hills, only now they drink in the valley.

  20. FearöfMüsic Says:

    Aaaarrgh! Rotten worthless touch screen! English! Drink! Stupid spellcheck! Is deink even a word? Damn wonky technology.

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    I thought you were quoting Chaucer or something.

  22. Rags Says:

    This all looks like an aerobics class to me. We have Zelda the Iguanadon instructor having her class get their blood pumping.

    “Move it you lazy homosapiens!!! Blast those gluts, blast them I say!! Last one to finish is my lunch!”

    Neanderthal doing hamstring stretches (neanderthals had notoriously stiff hammies), a jai-alai player (possibley Mayan or Aztec), Emperor Chan on the weights so he can impress the “chicks” as he was the first to coin the phrase, private eye Dixon Hill doing side lunges, Mogli working with a yoga ball.

  23. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Fea rofm usic—I think “deink” is a word; isn’t it the stuff they use to draw decovers with?

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @B. C: I’m going to hunt you down and stab you in the face. 😀

  25. Tat Wood Says:

    Ever since I saw this yesterday I’ve had ‘Safety Dance’ running through my head.
