Good Show Sir Comments: They were an odd super hero team, but they kept the streets of Boston safe for a few months.
Published 1971

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!

    You mean Boston, the newly discovered moon orbiting Jupiter which can be clearly seen in the background…?

  2. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Commence obligatory hippies-and-drugs jokes.

    *thinks* OK, which one of this lot was the actual author? Ira Levin, is that you? No.

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    They don’t even have the continent right. That’s not North America. That’s Europa.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Less than a feeling.

  6. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Boston must be such a thoroughly boring place that the book’s title can’t quite believe something interesting happened there.

  7. HappyBookworm Says:

    My take is that this guy is having a bad dream about what to write for his PhD thesis in history…in Boston…from 2000 BC until the apocalyptic approach of Jupiter.

    Jupiter is downside up.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    Allow me to gussy up that image.

    Is that Maude Frickert wearing a New England Patriots hat?

    “In the TRADITION of Rosemary’s Baby…”
    Yeah, yeah. Only an American would call imitating something that came out less than a decade earlier a “tradition”.

    The Disney version would of course be labeled a “Classic” from day one.

    Needs more demon muskrat.

    “It happened in BOSTON? Man, I was so stoned I missed the whole thing.”

    @Bibliomancer – Whatever it is, it has a monocle on a stick. An affectation which Donald Trump should adopt.

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    The ‘Cheers’ reboot wasn’t much cop.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    Make Way for Darklings

  16. Anna T. Says:

    The title makes it sound like someone’s in shock that anything of any importance whatsoever happens in Boston. In this case, judging by the cover art, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that whatever’s happened in Boston has something to do with why Jupiter is falling towards the Earth. At a guess.

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T.: maybe it’s Deflategate. People there seemed to think it was Earth-shattering.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Goodness! The mephitic vapors are coming from inside that fellow’s jacket and trousers!

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Hmmm, I didn’t know doves could suffer from flatulence.

  20. anon Says:

    That’s not where you take your pulse.
    No wonder the guy looks like he thinks he’s dead.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Hey, maybe that’s not Europa or an upside down Jupiter behind him—maybe it’s Planet Nine!

  22. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – More likely Plan Nine (from Outer Space)

  23. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—best movie of all time. Bela Lugosi died halfway through the shoot so the guy who replaced him keeps his face covered by a cloak through the entire second half of the film.

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC, B’mancer: I never saw that one. It happened in Boston?

  25. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—San Fernando Valley, actually. Not that different from outer space.

  26. JaunPaul Says:

    I’m from Boston, and no, it did not happen here.
