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!

    Next time, check the grains for ergot first, m’kay?

  2. Ray P Says:

    These new pubs and their fancy cocktail decorations. What is it with sf and cephalopods?

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    Who says Bill Plympton is out of ideas?

  4. Jessica Martin Says:

    An Excellent book by C. Clarke, In this White Hart Pub in London just north of Fleet Street, Harry Purvis holds court-a consummate tall-tale teller who always has a good story up his sleeve. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Cash or card. No checks or cephalopods.

    “Sir, I’ve told you a hundred times, you can’t pay off your bar tab with tall tales…unless there are dino-mites.”

    Lloyd Bridges?!? Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit hallucinating octopi.

    Time paradox gentlemen please.

    Tiny bubbles (and assorted iconic sci-fi images)
    In the wine (and also in this beer, and in near-space orbits)
    Make me happy (or at least gloriously plotzed)
    Make me feel fine (cuz I get to read all the GSS responses!)

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Frankly, I think throwing invertebrates at a Mark Rothko canvas should be encouraged!

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    This looks horribly familiar

  12. Anna T. Says:

    Either that’s an exceptionally unusual craft brew, or that guy is a drunk wizard.

    Your choice.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Dead Stuff—might work just as well in a Jackson Pollock context, maybe better.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: maybe better indeed!

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—what am I missing here? Having me on? Lost in space, mate.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: You have to watch a bit of context to get to the association between alcohol and Jackson Pollock, but it’s there.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Thanks, teach. I’ll get right on that. ‘Tis all pellucidly clear.

  18. Bibliomancer Says:

    A catchier title would have been 15 x C.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    How we test the waters in Guanabara Bay.

  20. HappyBookworm Says:

    Oh wow, I like this cover. Alternate reality Robert Frost and his magic Sci-Fi gumballs! What does that say about me?

  21. Edo Bosnar Says:

    HappyBookworm, re: what does it say about you? I don’t know, that you’ve got taste?
    This is a fantastic cover. I’m at a loss to see why it would even be considered bad, much less deserving of inclusion among “the worst.”

  22. Tom Noir Says:

    @Edo – touchy!
