I hate Wookies who wear sunglasses in the dark just to look cool.Click for full image

Carolyn Comments: I kept trying to take a picture of this where the aliens were visible. I thought it was the light reflecting off the ancient library cover but actually that’s just how it was painted…

Published 1981

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: 6.25 out of 10)

    Poor choice for positioning the spear and the mountain chain, I thought s/he was holding up a giant maroon curtain.

    What a cheery cover. Makes me want to sing ‘Happy Happy Joy Joy’ all day long.

    @DSWBT 4—same here. Only I thought it was the hearth rug, since I read the title as The Hearth Rug of Vai and thought it was a story about the home furnishing choices of a great guitarist.

    @BC: It’s actually The Rave of Hair Thug, and they’re on their way to the big dance!

    The alien holding the spear is actually Flandry in disguise. The right arm is a dead giveaway

    “pssst . . . paint a partial lunar eclipse on it.”
    “Because I said so. Oh, and change the position on the spear the second gorilla is holding. I don’t want people to realize what it is on their first look.”
