''Call me Dick!''Click to engorge that cover image

Tom Noir Comments: What shall we discuss here? The princess on the giant bean bag bed? Blade threatening a man with a corkscrew? Or the ‘stiff breeze’ inside a room with no windows?

Published 1976

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: 8.75 out of 10)

    Always nice to see a man who enjoys his work. Really enjoys it.

  2. Bibliomancer Says:

    Gaikon. Is that like Comic-Con?

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    Is this from John Norman’s* little known bi period? And if so why isn’t it called ‘Warlords of Biekon’?

    *Hey, ‘Jeffrey Lord’ isn’t fooling anyone**.

    **Or ‘Roland J. Green’.

    In normal human beings, the femur is the longest bone in the body. But
    is not a normal human beings.

    A quick backhand from the soldier and Blade won’t be smiling anymore.

  6. fred Says:

    I think the Warlords of Gaikon should call in the Plasterers of Gaikon to finish up that back wall.

    What we can’t see is whether anyone’s got rubber-soled shoes to prevent them all sliding on that sloping tiled floor. The princess on the scatter-cushion mound is especially precarious.

    Dick, Sos.

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I may regret asking this question, but has
    ever snapped open a Slim Jim and shouted ‘Oh, yeah!’?

  10. Anna T. Says:

    That man . . . was he created by stitching together the torso and legs of two different men? I mean, the anatomical issues present here . . . I’m surprised it’s not tagged as such.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Is there a face in his chest? A scowling eye under each of his nips, his sternum is a nose…

  12. Francis Boyle Says:

    Kabuki mask breastplate? Subcutaneous demon?

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    Is the name pronounced ‘gay-con’ or ‘guy-con’? Either’s interesting but the latter also offers cheaper car insurance from a cockernee lizard .

    @DSWBT—maybe two faces, cheek by jowl? Pareidolia rules!

  15. Bibliomancer Says:

    Read it and weep:

  16. JuanPaul Says:


    oh my god

    “firm as perfectly ripened fruit”

  17. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Anna T. – I’ve seen so many bad covers the anatomical issues don’t even register anymore. Tag updated.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @B’mancer: why did you BROWN inflict that BROWN horrid thing on BROWN the world? What BROWN did we ever BROWN do to you?

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:


    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night forever
    And you know that she’s half-crazy and her name’s really Petunia
    And she feeds you tea and oranges that remind you of some other sort
    Of perfectly ripened fruit . . .

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    I got to the end of the first chapter but couldn’t stop thinking of this

  21. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Is that Leonard Koan?

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—not sure.
