Juan Paul Comments: Don’t get too excited, he’s not flying. He’s been shot from a circus cannon and this is the split second before impact.
Published 1979

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: 7.21 out of 10)

    Aquarius and my name is Ralph.
    Now I like a woman who loves her freedom,
    And I like a woman who can hold her own,
    And if you fit that description, baby, come with me…

    Did you hear me?

    Andrew Wyeth did it first, Andrew Wyeth did it better. Next!

    Nothing says you are in the dark heart of Middle America like an flying shoeless albino adolescent on the prowl Donald Trump.

    Blind Voices—Part 1 of the trilogy

    Deaf Odors—Part 2

    Mute Touches—Part 3

    Is he on top of something invisible?

    And is his head in front of the Sun, reflecting the Sun, or is he actually wearing a glowing hat?

    So many questions . . .

    As he plunged to his doom, Art wondered how Paul had talked him into sitting in the giant catapult.

    Being from midwestern America, I can assure you that our dark heart includes neither flying albinos nor white pumps. They both get grass stained so easily.

    Midwestern America? Dark Heart? Here’s your Dark Heart of Midwestern America.

    @BC, 5: ‘Blind voices’ are used in echolocation. Clearly, that gentleman is a so-called ‘Bat-Man’.

    I always knew afro hairstyles were magical!

    @DS—thanks! Always good to have scientist on hand. Does that mean the hero of Book 2, Deaf Odors would be Snake-man?

  13. fred Says:

    I think if you put a circus tent on a Gor cover you would be ethically obliged to mention Bradbury somehow.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: He was once a man. A man!

  15. JRDelirio Says:

    Considering Reamy had already passed away when that was printed and Bradbury hung on until 2012, that blurb was little consolation.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—aye, and a good man, a man who came to Sarnath, where he met, alas, his fate.

    “NOT SINCE TED CRUZ has a fantasy candidate so captured the dark hearts of midwestern America.”
    Donald Trump’s
