Rachel Comments: There’s high-octane, adrenaline-flooding, heart-bursting, ground-pounding, high-speed tracking going on. Somewhere.

Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    No biscuits, very suspicious.

    He looks super jealous of that grey coloured cravat!

    Act calm…act calm…don’t act suspicious…act…

    I say, have you seen where all of our other friends got off to?

    @TW: is there an ‘eyes with no pupils’ tag?

    “More tea, vicar? I’ll be mother.”

    The title actually refers to the mix of liquid in the cup.This is a physician’s visit, and Mr. Bad-Hair-Dye is drinking a potion that will light up his red cells, enabling the grey elf to monitor his blood pressure and track any circulatory issues going on. Riveting stuff.

  7. Nephilim Says:

    A book cover that truly tests both your manhood and your commitment to read Sci-Fi openly in public. In my day, the heavy metal era, we had wine, women and wookies. Today we have tea-toting teetotaling towheads.

    “There’s tea somewhere near here. I can SMELL it.”

    Jason Starsmasher dreaded the Sundays. The afternoon tea with his alien mother-in-law. The smell of jasmin and mint that always made him vaguely nauseous. And always, always the lies:
    “More tea, Jason dear?”
    “Of… of course.”
    “One lump or two?”
    “I hope you don’t find this boring, dear.”
    “Of course not.”
    “Because if you do… OUR RACE SHALL DECLARE WAR ON EARTH!”
    “There’s no need for that.”
    “Yes, dear. Have another cup.”
    Perhaps, Jason thought, war was a viable alternative.

    A Foreigner novel. So slightly more exciting than her REO Speedwagon ones.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: Bachman-Turner Underwhelming.

    Is a sea turtle making sweet love to the top of the teapot?

    I’m sure old alien woman lives alone in a space apartment with 20 cat-people crapping all over the floor.

    A Poison Novel

    A Van Halen Novel

    A Europe Novel

    Tea: clearly, a universal constant. It’s fascinating to know that aliens in many fictional universes consider it a solution to many problems.

    Also clear: these men must both be Space Brits, because they’re also wearing the height of 18th century couture, on top of aforementioned tea drinking.

    Although the lack of biscuits is odd.

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    The lack of biccies might explain the title, if they’ve plumped for cereal-bars instead
    @Anna T.: it might be an alternate timeline where the whole War of Independence thing was cancelled due to lack of interest. That’s why it’s a Foreigner novel rather than Boston.

    T-Racker by C.J.Cherreyh
    A Foreigner novel

    He wanted to know what love is. Too late he noticed the sugar cubes were in pieces. The tea was as cold as ice and gave him double vision. Maybe it was the rain.
    He felt an urgent need to break it up.
    “You said ‘I don’t want to live without you’.”
    “That was yesterday. It was a white lie.”
    Maybe he could avoid the head games by resorting to love on the telephone.
    “Can’t wait, dirty white boy,” said hot blooded Luanne, “when it comes to love, I can’t slow down.”
    “Women”, thought the soul doctor.

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Anon — we’re not worthy!

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Dear Ms. Swift,

    Now that we’ve sorted out streaming music, do you think you could have Apple bring some excitement to this cover?



  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:


    A NAFTA Novel

  22. Tat Wood Says:

    Why does the sugar-bowl have an aerodynamic fin? Why doesn’t the Val Kilmer guy in the white jacket use a saucer? Why don’t they move the table further inside the cave so the wind won’t make the tea get cold?
