JuanPaul Comments: That expression you get when you realize that you are just cover bait for a bunch of 13 year old geeks.

Published 1980

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. 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: 8.31 out of 10)

    A funny thing happened on the way to Gor.

    “He crossed the border between science and sorcery” and used it to create a large breasted VERY pissed off lady. Good show sir. Good show.

    He crossed the crystal structure between calcium and sulfates

    She divorced her husband because he bet their life savings on Leicester City winning the Premier League this year.

    Wizard, show our studio audience what is behind Curtain #1 !

    Back cover.
    I think we have a case of ‘bait and switch’ going on here.

  7. misterbob Says:

    Congratulations ! Susanna Reid – you are now married to Tom Cruise
    – just what you always wanted !

  8. Mark E Says:

    @fred OK, NOW I have to read this book. Genuinely sounds awesome.

    “Where’d you say that Wizard’s from?”

  10. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Snow White and the 700 dwarfs?

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred: ‘Tito Ren’? He was one of the Ren 5ive. You remember, they had that Saturday morning cartoon show and a string of hits before Kylo went solo.

  12. JaunPaul Says:

    @Mark E @fred it actually does sound like a good read, but that would mean I would have to take this book to the cashier and be judged

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    The gargolylish man holding her chain has just realised what nobody else has, that the roof’s made of burned sugar and it’s about to rain.

  14. Perry Armstrong Says:

    I keep reading the title as ‘The Wizard of Amirite’, which in turn prompts me to read all subsequent posts thusly:

    “Snow White and the 700 dwarfs. Amirite?”

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    What exactly is going on? It’s an outdoor market with thousands of interested parties present, yet apparently one single item (person) for sale. For how long are the sellers expecting the sale to last? Have the sellers provided food, drink and facilities for the crowd? Are they expecting large groups of investors to join together, yet divvy up an indivisible commodity? This makes no sense at all. And fred’s back cover doesn’t help.

  16. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @Dead Stuff: “… yet apparently one single item (person) for sale.”

    Until James Bond turned up to spoil the party, the slave traders in ‘Never Say Never Again’ seemed to be operating on a similar business model. Granted that ‘single item’ was 1983 Kim Basinger (*sigh*), but still…

  17. HappyBookworm Says:

    Just where is the boundary between science and sorcery? Nowhere near here apparently. Perhaps it was crossed fifty miles back…

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Not to be outdone by Ted Cruz, Donald Trump announces his vice-presidential choice before a huge crowd of supporters.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Perry: I didn’t see that one…isn’t it NSNA regarded as one of the worst Bond/007 film scripts? 😉

  20. RachelJ Says:

    Perry Armstrong (#14). I too read it as “Amirite”. I bet a lot of people did. Amirite?

  21. Tat Wood Says:

    I can’t help thinking of Virginia O’Brien, from 1940s musicals, doing her I’m-better-than-this-please-get-this-number-over-with performance. Especially this one.

  23. Francis Boyle Says:

    Is that (Space) Jesus over there next to the (Space) Cowboy? Because that’s the story I want to read. “(Space) Jesus and the Cowboy. They teamed up to travel the galaxy having wacky adventures and saving souls. Also they fight crime.”

  24. Anna T. Says:

    I have an explanation for the bored expression: She’s a spy, and only pretending to be a slave. Of course, the midget holding the chain doesn’t know that . . .

  25. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: Maybe this is a hidden camera stunt, and Toothy is the only one not in on the joke?

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Look! Over there in the crowd to the left… an Australian!
    “G’day, mates! Anyone for a Foster’s? Wot’s goin’ on here…? Wot the…? HEY! That’s no way to treat a lady!”

  28. Klaus Mogensen Says:

    Richard Corben is incapable of drawing women with tits smaller than their heads.

  29. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Klaus: That creates the interesting mental picture of a grown man, pen in hand, paper on desk, alone late at night, sobbing as he clutches at a picture of Twiggy.

  30. Tat Wood Says:

    Alison Janney contemplates firing her agent.

  31. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Her expression and his body language make a bit more sense when you realise what he’s singing. Amirite?
