Outis Comments: A valiant attempt to describe an actual scene from the book. Yes, that’a foxlike alien with humanlike hands, then a different one with a beak, plus two perplexed looking humans. An ordinary day in the Humanx Commonwealth.

Erik Tollstedt Comments: I want an image of Ernest Hemingway. He should be sitting on a purple couch in outer space. There should be papers flying away from his lap. Also, I’d like to see Ernest Hemingway’s head explode. But not in the normal way. It should explode into several other heads, one of them a sleeping hispanic man, and the other Emperor Ming. And have some sort of purple beam shoot out of his brain too. Yeah, that will convey “creative genius” like nothing else.
