    That’s what I call the mother of all splitting headaches!

    “Lisa, you’re tearing me apart!”

    Eating forty cakes can ruin your complexion.

    That’s as many as four tens. And that’s terrible.

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    Ha ha ha what a story A.R. Yngve!

    Anyway, you can’t write a novel without breaking a few heads.

    Big Brother was not having a good day.

    The tragedy…hit by the Moozlamik Ray Gunz he so feared!

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Strange worlds.
    Lost in time.
    Have all pieces.
    Doesn’t want to fit together.

  9. fred Says:

    Yup, that’s a strange world all right, with the black representing being lost in time. I appreciate when cover blurb and art mesh in perfect artistic harmony. Lost in time? No. Perfection to last in time. All time. Forever.

  10. fred Says:

    On second thought perfection would be a scantily clad Frazetta babe with a big ass representing a lost world, and another scantily clad Frazetta babe with big bazooms representing the whole lost in time thing. Throw in a giant snake encoiling them both to tie the title into both the blurb and art.

    “Ooh, you’ll cop it now! You’ve broken dad’s Travis Bickle Action Figure’

    “Naah, a bit of glue and he’ll not notice the difference. Did you see where the Mohican bit went?’

    Until the discovery of tectonic plates encircling the earth, no one could account for the drifting of continents, yet clearly there was a pattern emerging . . . .

    Not a fan of this new, modernist interpretation of Humpty Dumpty.

    “Is this book written by THE Bertram Chandler?”
    ‘No, it’s by A Bertram Chandler. We keep a few in stock for just such occasions.”

    This guy is obviously a crackhead.

  16. Anna T. Says:

    I know what’s going on here – these are ancient faceshards found by archaeologists at a dig site, and they’ve pieced this guy’s face together from what they’ve found so far. Obviously, there are still a few pieces missing.

  17. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @Tom Noir(13): but Kevin Spacey won plaudits for his performance:

    Humpty: Not that. The other thing. Come on, I know it’s dangling on the tip of your tongue. Let me hear it just once, please?
    Fair Maiden: All the king’s horses and all the king’s men will…
    Humpty: WRONG!!!

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom, Perry:

    But a wizard named Gilbert, a master of tagging,
    Posted the pieces where help wasn’t flagging:
    He crowdsourced ol’ Humpty on the Web 2.0
    And the GSS regulars got him ready to go!

    Shh, now, off to slumberland with you for the week-end.

  19. Vyrmis Says:

    That’s the ‘before’ photo. Here’s the ‘after’:

  20. Ray P Says:

    The horror. The horror.

  21. Perry Armstrong Says:

    A. Bertram Chandler novel to be filmed by M. Night Shyamalan starring F. Murray Abraham with music by P. Diddy Combs.
