Good Show Sir Comments: You got to wonder how baldy’s tunic is fastened in the back. Is it like one of those hospital gowns?

    A Novel of Cesspit, the Worst Covers.

    AGAIN, looking in an entirely different direction than the action! Why, Mr. Art Director? Did you tell the model to look directly into the ginormous hair dryer that was blowing her hair, and crop it out when you Photoshopped her onto a Krofft backdrop?

    Out cruising for ladies, at the end of the night you have to fight your wingman over the one good-looking girl.

    Hell’s hokey-cokey: “In out, in out, and out of time’s abyss.”

    I would like to see a ‘lost continent’ novel about the guy(s) who actually lost the damned thing in the first place.

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    Dunno about bald Batman but I think I know where I’ve seen the other two

  7. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Not to be confused with Caspak, The Friendly Lost Continent.

    @fred: “Dammit, it was here just a minute ago! I had it in my hands, put it down and now I can’t find it!”

    Sounds like me with my keys and cellphone…. 🙁

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Jon: So when you’re at the end of your contract month, are you out of minutes’ abyss? Or in it? 😉

  10. Jon K. Says:

    @DSWBT: Out-of-Contact Abyss, more like. 😉

    Okay, that wasn’t good. I need lunch and more caffeine, I think.

  11. Anna T. Says:

    Don’t you just hate it when a bald winged guy attacks in the middle of your photo shoot?

    Mind you, she doesn’t seem that bothered.

    Wait . . . maybe the attack is part of the photo shoot. Yes, that explains everything here. Except wingman’s clothes.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Jon: is your cell phone ring tone ‘erupting volcanoes and swooping birdmen’?

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Ok I know there are many who are more knowledgeable about weather than I am, but why is the volcano smoke being blown in the opposite direction of photo-shoot-girl’s hair? Are Nosferatu Jr.’s wings setting up a local cyclonic condition? But if that were so, wouldn’t Jungle Boy’s loincloth also be blown back?

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    From the “Why Bother” department:

    Edgar Rice burrows out of time’s abyss . . .
    only to find himself trapped in an awful cover on a lost ghost continent.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    If Roxy Music and Meat Loaf ever did an album together this would be the cover.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Edgar Abyss Burroughs’s


  17. HappyBookworm Says:

    I don’t think time is an abyss, just a dimension at right angles to the lower spacial dimensions, unless you think the fourth dimension is also spacial, allowing for a “curled dimension” energy…oh well. I’ll just forget physics for now and toss my hair over my shoulder.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Edgar Rice Flavours’


    A Novel of Catsup, the Lost Condiment

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred, Jon: Here’s an article about a ‘lost continent’ called ‘North America’. I happen to be sitting in North America at the moment, and I know where it is, relative to the Sun, the Large Magellanic Cloud, etc. Perhaps ‘lost’ is a matter of perspective, as in, ‘I was wandering around, completely lost, looking for my car keys. And the continent was lost too, looking for its transcontinental seaway.’
