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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.86 out of 10)

    That doesn’t look like proper clothing, that looks more like foil from last week’s Easter candy.

    @TW, there should be either a ‘moon’ tag or an ‘enormous floating golf ball’ tag.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Same author, more clothing, even more jackass.

    Wot no Amstrad tag ?

    Hey lady, I have to sneeze. Mind if I use your handkerchief?

  8. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Why is the title encased in a speech balloon so that the machine on the cover appears to be SPEAKING THE TITLE??

    Not the Earth, not the Bat Signal, not Commissioner Gordon, not the Batman. Do like the Johnny Depp Tonto headgear though.

  11. THX 1138 Says:

    Can we be sure she’s not in fact wearing a novelty apron and is actually fully clothed underneath?

  12. Jon K. Says:

    What gets me is that Mr. Hey-I’m-Wearing-A-Helmet-With-The-Visor-Down is reacting as if the bare-handed slap from Ms. I’m-In-Charge-Of-The-Overhead-Projector is going to hurt.

    Especially since it looks like she can’t reach him from where she’s standing.

  13. Jon K. Says:

    I’m not getting this one. Is this one of those fake TV-fights – she doesn’t seem to be standing close enough to Kneeling-Guy-In-Helmet to make contact on that swing – or is she just getting her jollies beating on a projection from the Overhead Projector of the Gods (thanks, A. R. Yngve!)?

  14. Ray P Says:

    Sf con disco.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I think this is a Tableau Vivant. The title is “Handkerchief-Clad Damsel Threatens to Strike Bird-Hatted Man for Stepping on Her Nicely Polished Toe.”

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    Try kneeling in that position for more than a few seconds.Even without a woodpecker on your tin hat.

    ‘Summon the community osteopath.’

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    From the Sci-Fi Urban Dictionary:


    Community Osteopath
    Communicant Telepath
    Communist Warpath

  18. Anna T. Says:

    I have to say I’ve never seen a knight helmet with an entire bird as the plume before.

    Also, I am forced to assume that the curious pink garments on the woman are merely her underwear, and that she has just thrown off whatever she was wearing over them.

  20. drlemaster Says:

    It looks like she was originally painted as fully-clothed, then photoshopped to be naked, then had the violet ensemble photoshopped over that.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I see the turntable and the mixing board…I even see the mod light show…but I don’t see the speakers.

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Learn from her mistake — NEVER try to put up a tent in a strong wind.

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So what is a “Communipath” then?
    A) A Communist sociopath (is there any other kind? Ha ha, just kidding!)
    B) A Communist telepath (“I can read your bourgeois mind!”)
    C) A commuting telepath (“I sense the bus is late…”)
    D) A telepath doing some sort of Communion service (“Body of Christ… IN MY MIND!!”)
    E) The road to a community (“Take left and follow the Communipath to Camp Togetherness.”)

  24. RachelJ Says:

    @A.R.Yngve. According to my researches it’s just a fancy word for telepath.

    Actual review quote: “I bought this book for the cover which featured a scantly clad woman in a purple lamé two piece and silver cape, arm raised above her head about to smack the hell out of a cowering male in a Roman inspired outfit, complete with a helmet upon which a purple, reptilian bird was perched. Oh and a large archaic machine sat between the two with green and red lights shining upon the solider. Still not exactly sure what part of the book that picture referenced but it got me to buy it. “

  25. HappyBookworm Says:

    Another option: the Overhead Projector of the gods is projecting an image of the cowering semi-Roman…and right in the middle of the woman’s dance routine, too!

  26. Emster Says:

    Yet Another Option: One of the many troops of performers at the Santa Monica Pier in slapped-together costumes giving it their all in a mediocre, nonsensical way.

  27. GSS ex-noob Says:

    You can tell she’s important from her commanding stance, and also the fact that she’s the only brightly-colored and clean thing on the cover.

    Bird-hat dude may be starkers underneath his cape. And/or merely an image from the Overhead Projector of the Gods.
