I ponder... can rooster bears breathe in space? Nope...Click for full image

Scott B’s Art Direction: We don’t want anyone to confuse this with the film “Labyrinth” which has just recently been released, so put something on there that nobody will mix up with that. Ah, how about a rooster-bear pondering deep thoughts? That’s the stuff.

Tom Noir Comments: The smirk on this fellow’s face says, “Underneath this desk, I’m not wearing trousers.” Because when you’re a dinosaur sea-captain with a fancy sash, who’s going to make you?

Jered Comments: It’s seriously like the artist used pictures of existing pop culture icons to model their characters. Matthew Broderick for the hero, Hoggle from Labyrinth for the goblin dude, and possibly Joey Fatone for the dwarf.

Durbin Comments: In a shocking development, skateboards actually happen in this novel. And there is, in fact, an elf inspiration for Sherlock Holmes. And a brief part of the novel occurs in New York City! But otherwise, the cover gives a completely misleading impression of the contents.

Hakan Comments: I picked this up in Picocon 29 in London today. Cost me a grand total of 1. Interestingly this was mainly before the hippy ages so I am not sure what they were smoking.

Scott B Comments: I heartily approve of the Space Moose steed here, but the culture clash of the Native American / Scots clothing is really messing with my mind. And the giant fiery phoenix hair. I guess this isn’t one of the four books my planetary civilization needs.
