    @Biblomancer – Topical! +1

    I have to admit I kinda like it, not sure what looks you’d get on the bus though.

    Kudos to B’mancer!

    Did you know that your brain has an eject button you can set off with your own tongue…?

    @SI @DSWBT Thank you! I’m thinking more cutting-edge topical humor on this site might attract the younger, hipper Buzzfeed/Huffington Post style commenters to join in.

    According to Wikipedia, “Wyman Woods Guin (pseud: Norman Menasco) was a pharmacologist and advertising executive best known for writing science fiction.”

    I feel like this tells you all you really need to know about this book.

    Well, this is Art. I can’t argue with that.

    Ah, Bedlam… beautiful garden, where heads grow on trees!

    @Tom Noir – I have this book and it is a pretty good collection of short stories, one that I have re-read several times. They are unusual, but not bad…

    Yes, the flower-head is in keeping with the tone of the works inside, without referring to any of them.

    @muttley: flower? If anything, that’s the fruiting body of a fungus. The kind you eat to induce permanent brain & liver damage.
