    Flowers for Algernon was a sequel to Lord of the Flies??

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    I don’t remember an armadillo in the book. Maybe it’s an oblique reference to tedious Channel 4 arts show ‘Without Walls’.

    The only things on this cover that have anything at all to do with the story are the mouse and the maze. I will assume that the cover artist was high.

    As we all know, the cognitively disabled are equivalent to primitive, penis-gourd wearing peoples,while those of superior intelligence have enormous blue heads emitting red “smartness rays.”

    Brickbats for whoever thought this would make an appropriate cover for one of the classics of SF.
