Zanthar Offs Many WorldsZanthar of the Many Worlds

Bubble BoyZanthar at Moon’s Madness

BummerZanthar at Trip’s End

Lazy EyeZanthar at the Edge of Never

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our good friends at Goodreads sums up Zanthar: “The bad news is that if you want to read an exciting mashup of Doc Savage / Buckaroo Banzai, John Carter of Barsoom, and the yellow peril tales of Fu Manchu, with just a soupçon of Lovecraftian horror, then this book isn’t it.”

1. Jeff Jones runs out of paint

2. Jeff Jones remembers he can’t paint feet

3. Jeff Jones eats the brown acid

4. Jeff Jones takes the day off

Thanks to Andre for sending these in!

Good Show Sir Comments: Bibliomancer commented yesterday “It seems whenever we post a Devil-worshiper cover we encounter “Technical Difficulties” on the site. Best not to mess with the Dark Forces.”

Well I say “Bring it on, Beelze-Buddy! Good Show Sir doesn’t fear you or your skank mistress!”

From the GSS Slack Channel:

Tweet Jane: Where did you guys disappear to? I had to get the cleaning lady to let me in the locked offices.

GSS Admin: Sorry, I’ve been on August holiday. I’ve always promised myself a month in Bangkok.

Tweet Jane: August holiday? You haven’t returned from last August’s holiday. Your voice mail and mailbox are full.

GSS Admin: Gotta run. The cabana boy is bringing over the cocktails.

Tag Wizard: Sorry, but I’ve, uh, been detained. It’s all a misunderstanding. My solicitor will have it all straightened out in no time at all!

Tweet Jane: Well what about the 2000th Post? We were planning to a have a contest, and prizes, and a big month-long rollout.

Tag Wizard: Oh yeah. Slipped my mind. Go into the submission form and see what’s laying around. Something with nice pair of jubblies is always a hit. The password is on a post-it note somewhere on my desk.

Tweet Jane: And I’m taking all the petty cash. You haven’t paid me in two months.
