    I’ll try to come up with a witty comment later, because I’m too scared right now…

    You are an apple. This is the last thing you’ll ever see.

    Back cover. I can now sleep knowing that is not the hero about to get et.

    On second thought we might have a serious case of perspectiveitis here. Looming beastie might be 6″ high and way in the front.

    There’s that planet from “It Happened in Boston?” Just wandering around from cover to cover.

    After seeing his parents brutally slain, millionaire playhorse Neddy Wayne vowed to put the fear into all criminals and became Bat-Horse. The kid with the gun is Dobbin, the Boy Wonder.

    Female horse-thing road rage.

    The men Outside wanted in – even if they had to destroy their world to make it!

    The cover blurb reads like it was generated by a computer. Or perhaps… a Mac App??

  12. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I’m on the outside looking in (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
    I don’ wanna be, I don’ wanna be left on the outside all alone
    Well, I guess I’ve had my day and you let me go my way
    Now it’s me who has to neigh-eigh-eigh

    (with apologies to Little Anthony and the Imperials)

    I’d always wondered what the flesh-eating horses from the myth of Heracles’ Twelve Labours looked like.

  14. anon Says:

    Considering the title and the blurb, methinks it’s about epic buttrape.

  16. RachelJ Says:

    @Tom Noir. Maybe the whole thing’s generated and published by the “CC” Mac App? The alternative is that *multiple live human beings* approved “Bumsider” as a title, and I just think that’s a bit far-fetched.

    Also, “Never before published”? Oooo, look, future rare collector’s item, even more valuable than a “first time in paperback”!

    I like the horse, though.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @RachelJ: of course, of course. But can you talk to it?

  18. Hammer Says:

    All of you have such funny comments. I can’t compete with that! I just wanted to point out that the cover artist is Josh Kirby, known from all of those Discworld covers.
    Oh, and that “horse” is scary as hell.

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And no one can talk to a horse of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. EEEEEEEHH!!!

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Bottom right corner: a crashed spaceship. Between it and the wall is a nude woman staring contemplatively at a big blue shiny thing.

    @RayP: at first, I thought you presumptive for saying that was a lady horse-thing. Then I noticed the eyelashes.

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Jokes aside… I heartily recommend C.C. MacApp’s short story “And All The World A Grave”, here:

    Movie News: In the vein of his sterling remake of Robert Wise’s ‘The Haunting’, Jan de Bont is gonna CGI the s**t outta ‘The Rocking Horse Winner’.

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The problem is, that English is read left to right. Which means that:


    and something that looks like a pair of buttocks


    are all in a neat line when the page first loads. 🙁
