Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. 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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.57 out of 10)

    “Man, this is some heavy shit!”
    “What, dude, the one we’re carrying… or the one we’re smokin’?”
    “Far out, man!”

    I’m confused as to why the patient needs to be in a stretcher position,when everyone is flying ,would not a wheelchair be more suitable ?

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    @misterbob – Because a flying wheelchair would look silly? This is some serious cover art.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    The blurb writer is leaving us hanging here … how about …

    … and the Apostles just wanted to fly!

    It’s the middle of a trilogy: Volume 1 shows them all being loaded into a giant catapult and volume 3 them splatting into a wall.

    Super surprised to find out this wasn’t a Philip Jose Farmer book!

    Druid delivery system for Discworld?

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    …and I just want the cover article on Science! Is that too much to ask?

    Why does Mr. God need a walking stick at all, if He can fly?

  11. Anna T. Says:

    That flying pose looks taken from a photo of someone jumping, and they’ve been caught in midair. I mean, if I could fly, I certainly wouldn’t do it looking like that – not just because of the stupid pose but because you should never, ever fly in a robe. Or a dress. Even if you ARE wearing underwear.

    @DSWBT: I bet you it’s his wizard staff.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Anna: Ah, I suppose that’s how they shield their unmentionables, then.

    “The cyborg just wanted to live; the robot wanted to die; the apprentice just wanted a sorcerer… so they got together and the cyborg killed the robot and became a sorcerer. THE END.”

    The studio began to regret giving the Superman reboot to director Mel Gibson.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Top draft picks for the Los Angeles Angels show up for spring training after a night of partying.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I liked the original blurb better:
    “You’ll believe a druid can fly.”

    What’s with the little people?

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @Anon: They’re not small, they’re far away.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Perry: we don’t call them ‘far away.’ We call them ‘exceptionally displaced persons.’ 😉

  20. anon Says:

    @Perry Armstrong: Well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

    A common sight in the sky above Orson Scott Card’s house.

    Man at the bottom: “Hey guys, wait up!”

    Maybe I spent too much time over at I Can Haz Cheeseburger, but I look at this cover and the only thing that comes to mind is
