A bird with a bird hairdo. A first.Click for larger image

Lillie Awesome Art Direction: Give me a little man, with a giant bird grafted to his head, and out of the giant bird’s head, I want a man’s head if human heads were shaped like potatoes, but upside down, and sitting inside that, I want a man, but with a bird’s head, and maybe make it look like the bird-headed man is shooting a bird out of his hand, which should also be holding a torch. Throw a bunch of rainbow people in a birth control pillbox in the background — it’s very high concept. We’re going to have to skimp on printing costs because we went over budget persuading Heinlein and Asimov to appear together, so don’t break your neck painting detail. Now, what say we make this a five martini lunch?

Good Show Sir Comments: Harlan Ellison has been promising to publish this for a long time. He allegedly had to wait for all the contributing authors to die off, so he could save money not paying them royalties.
