    The Great Fire of London anniversary celebrations get way out of hand.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I notice a lack of dragons on the cover. They’ve all been exiled…?

    I approve of her wide belt. If your trousers were made by an upholsterer, you’d need that belt, too!

    @DSWBT – Alternative title: Unicorn in Exile

    What’s an Iiaden? Are they like Space Italians?

    Can’t be much of a universe if you can copyright it. I mean, where’s the copyright office?

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I guess that old toker joker took the lyrics to “Space Cowboy” seriously. Maurice must have helped.

    #18 in the series. Some of the other books are really exciting according to Anne McCaffrey.

    “Oh no! I used too much baking powder in the scones!”

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    This cover didn’t make a lot of dough. In fact it wasn’t even a breadwinner.

  11. Bibliomancer Says:

    @fred – Wow. McCaffrey really busted her ass writing that blurb.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    @A.R. Yngve – I thought the book used too much floury language.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tag Wizard—fred’s link takes us to another candidate for a “Vapid Thoughts” tag. Just sayin’ . . . .

    The American remake of ‘Chucklevision’ changed all the wrong things.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    As has happened before in history, ergot mold in the flour leads to mass chaos, plus the inability of anyone to fire a weapon accurately.

  16. Anna T. Says:

    The dragon was probably just trying to buy some pastries, someone panicked, and things swiftly escalated.

    All it wanted was some croissants.

    The guy on the left is challenging the sense of perspective on this cover. I think the artist was going for a coming-right-at-you effect, though it comes across as disproportionate gigantism.

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    Can we get a ‘trousers made of bees’ tag?


  20. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Tom Noir – You get “fancy pants” and nothing more!

    Except you get today’s cover post.

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Well hello Mister and Mrs Fancypants.

  22. Tom Noir Says:

    Ah, Naked Came The Robot! A true must-not-be-seen-reading-on-the-bus classic.

    @DSWBT – I prefer to think the dragon has been exiled to this little town and is inside the explosion…experimenting with flash cooking techniques.

    P.S. Not sure it’s possible to stand the way that guy is standing.
