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!

    FREDERIK AND Q-BEE, SITTIN’ IN A TREE! B-U-Z-Z-I-N-G!

  2. Bibliomancer Says:

    When you wanna sell a lot of copies, you gotta put Fingerbeam Fred’s face on the cover!

  3. Perry Armstrong Says:

    I wear a recursive insect hat now.

    Recursive insect hats are cool.

  4. Ray P Says:

    A fly wearing pince-nez embodies the demonic?

    The unrenamed original is…DUCK YOUR HEADS, INCOMING SHEEPS INCOMING SHEEPS INCOMING SHEEPS…better somehow.

    @fred: oh, right, this is the one about the people insane enough to try to program in Python. 🙂

    @Perry Armstrong: I think you’re a bit off. I know he has ridiculous taste in hats, but I think the Droste insect hat is a bit much, yes?

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    The redacted chapter of ‘The Way The Future Was’ reveals that, far from being simply teenage magazine readers and wannabe writers in house-shares, the Futurians were a trial-run for SHIELD.

    Don’t get Fred angry…

  9. THX 1138 Says:

    What the Quant-hell is going on?

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @THX: UH, INSEKT DOLL MEN.

    Edit: HELL NO, INSEKT MUD.

  11. Ray P Says:

    It looks like an early nineteen-eighties music video effect or the Kenny Everett Video Show.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    They have this cover backwards. Shouldn’t the bug be inside of Fred’s head.

    Unless …

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—No flies on Fred, no flies on this Fred boy.

  14. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Vote for Paul LePage or the “Ziki Fly” will get ya!

  16. fred Says:

    Who ever decided the bug eyes didn’t need embossing was wrong.

  17. Max Bathroom Says:

    @Ray P
    No reason it can’t be both: IIRC Kenny used to have a lot of musical acts on his show early on, and they often got to do a song or two rather than just taking part in skits.
    (I don’t think this is the real Rod Stewart, though: https://youtu.be/IVfgnD-2XjM)

    Spoonerism time:
    Pederik Frohl
    Schemin’ in the Dull

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    So… the title and the artwork seem to imply that Fred’s the demon?

    I dunno, he seemed all right to me.

    Whoever thought it’d be a great idea to put a bug hat on Fred and then Droste it was wrong.

    Don’t you just hate it when Beelzebub flies up your nose and just bounces and buzzes around your head and can’t find his way out no matter how wide you open your mouth?
