Sequel to 'Schrödinger's Cat II: Electromagnetic Boogaloo'Click for full image

JuanPaul Comments: An artist with a mac and photoshop is put in a box and instructed to illustrate either a cat or a human woman. Until the box is opened and the artwork is observed by the outside world, the artist has created both a cat and a woman.

Published 1981

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: 8.70 out of 10)

    Give the guy with the Mac some credit: he completely resisted the temptation to use rounded corners.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    There’s a quantum superposition at work whereby Orgasm Research simultaneously will try everything and won’t try anything.

    Background music

    Everything is under control. Cat control. As we expected.

    “Tonight on Plastic Surgery Horrors, we take a disturbing look at Furry surgery…”

    Kudos for the boldest cover blurb of all time.

    A cat, a woman, and a scientist from Orgasm Research walk into a bar.

    Cat woman forlornly looking for the promised Homing Pigeons.

  9. Anna T. Says:

    The experiment had gone drastically wrong, and now she was stuck with a cat’s face for all eternity.

    And therefore, she’s sad because she can’t talk anymore.

    I can’t help thinking of the second series of ‘Phoenix Nights’

  11. Ray P Says:

    A cat and a woman walk into a telepod.

  12. JuanPaul Says:

    Yet another unrealistic beauty expectation for women. And cats.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    How does her neck work?

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    Poor kitty has a wig where her ears should be.

  15. JuanPaul Says:

    Here is some back cover goodness:

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    That back cover is doggerel, which seems wrong for a book with a cat woman who’s wondering where the pigeons are.

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    @GSS ex-noob – That’s what happens when you try to rhyme “this” and “is.”

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I meant doggerel, of course.

    Apparently everyone involved with this cover, both front and back, had too many tokes. Or something stronger.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Goodness, I found my way back here! What could it mean…?

  20. Tor Mented Says:

    Cheap date. Just bring a laser pointer.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    By the by, is “Tor” short for “Victor” or is it a corruption of “Thor”? I’ve been wanting to know.

  22. Tor Mented Says:

    I am a fan of the comedy show “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” In fact, I learned about this site because of a link on a Facebook page for that show.
    There was a Swedish wrester and actor named Tor Johnson. I assume that’s a variant spelling of Thor. He appeared in several movies that were shown on “Mystery Science Theater.”
    There also was an episode of “Mystery Science Theater” titled “Tormented.” And so I cobbled together my username from the two of them.
    Actual name is Patrick.

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Patricktor: Never heard of the show. Is it any good? 😉

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Always good to have another MSTie on board. Keep circulating the tapes.

    Tor Johnson was at the perfect level of acting talent to be in Ed Wood’s rep company.

  25. FluffyGhostKitten Says:

    Actually, I’m not sure if ‘bighanditis’ fits as a tag. That hand might even be a little small. Most people have hands nearly as large across as their faces. Not sure about cat-people, but people-people do tend to have hands that big. Purrsonally, I think we should paws and think about it right meow.

  26. Tor Mented Says:

    @DSWBT: It is my favorite show of all time, but it is a cult-type show. There was a 100% change in cast during its run, so there’s a wide variation in quality. Also, many of the obscure references to U.S. history, pop culture, etc., don’t translate well to other countries.
    There is currently a rebooted version on Netflix that isn’t as good.
    @GSS ex-noob: Hikeeba!

  27. Tor Mented Says:

    Wait, I didn’t even explain what “Mystery Science Theater 3000” is about! The show plays bad movies, and the cast offers humorous commentary on them.
    And GSS shows bad sci-fi/fantasy covers and offers humorous commentary on them. You can see why I like this site so much.

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @FluffyGhostKitten: Her hand is too big compared to her neck and shoulders, not big enough if her face needs to be covered fully, and too big if you compare it to the relative size of cat paws vs. cat face. A purrdicament.

    Which I have just done, causing my cat to wonder why I’m staring at her face. Payback, kitty, payback.
