    The ragweed pollen does that to my beak too. 🙁

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    How many limbs do these people possess? In round numbers.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    This is a very odd story that starts off on a planet of beaked, flying hermaphrodites

    …and, we’re done.

    The great tit in its natural habitat.

    “Egg, like a bird’s egg!”

    “You’ve made me eat my unborn children!”

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    Ironically enough, the Watcher’s last words were: “hey everybody, watch this!”.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    JP: ‘This’ll be funny, hold my beer!’

    ‘How? HOW?’

  8. fred Says:

    Prince Vultan has been a busy boy.

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    I know it was the 80s and leotards were, for some unaccountable reason, ‘in’, but how does she get in and out of it?

  10. Ikari Gendo Says:

    #TatWood Well, I’m stumped.

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    @Ikari Me too. It’s hard to grasp.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @IG, JP: well, that’s just your ‘pinion.

  13. Anna T. Says:

    It must be difficult to fly when your arms and legs have been tied behind your back, but she seems to be managing.

  14. Tracy Says:

    It would be cool to live in that mushroom house towards the back.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    @Tracy: it’s even cooler inside (in a retro sort of way)
    For some reason, the self-rowing boat at 3:46 really freaked me out as a five-year-old.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s safe to say this novel really laid an egg.

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    She has a lot of Twitter followers.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tracy: the first time one of the beaked hermaphrodites poo’ed on the roof, I think you’d change your mind.

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    @dswbt the winged woman on the cover looks like she may have just done so, and is trying to act casual about it.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Why do they need houses when they can’t move except in the air? They land and they’re just blobs, now with unwieldy wings. They must be hatched with the leotards already on.

    “Daft” doesn’t begin to cover it.

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    Yeah, she’s definitely a daft punk.

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    One day, the eggs on the top of the pile started rolling… and before they knew it, the people of Eggia had an avalanche on their hands. In a matter of minutes, their offspring was turned into a lake of scrambled eggs. All was lost.

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    All jokes and puns aside, this cover is empowering! It proves that women are just as capable as men of creating meh book covers with generic planets in the background.
