Bibliomancer Comments: Style and blow-dry my girlfriend’s hair right this time or I’ll slice you in two.

You might remember this from here.

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: 8.59 out of 10)

    Enter the ambiguously ethnic Dick Blade!

    As far as Sonny Chiba films go, this one looks pretty tame.

    The sympathetic looks of a couple who realise Mr Green is too physically weak to pull the trigger.

    At first I was confused as to who’s arm was holding the egg thing… then I wondered where the ladies other arm was going… THEN I couldn’t stop staring at his tight trousers (pants for you Uncle Sams!) There is a lot of leg in this!

    Then I noticed the alien with the laser gun… THEN I realised he had a hairdryer…

    Man it’s too hot today.

    Hey, Welcome back GSS Admin!
    Long time no see. Glad my cover was up to your impeccable standards. 🙂

    Ace spent money to update the cover from the 1964 edition.
    But they couldn’t get a new blurb?

    At the Paradoxical Blurb Writer’s School:
    Teacher: Ok class, let’s go over last night’s homework. Who’s got a paradoxical blurb to share?

    Billy: Find the Gates of Death—and Live!

    Susie: Find the Gates of Life—and Die!

    Jack: She was every man’s woman, until she became every woman’s man!

    Wally: Don’t miss this one!

    Biff: Vulgar, Vicious, Very Very Good!

    Muffy: Beyond the Star Range: Infinite Sex and Ultimate Horror!

    Willard: Imprisoned in Alien Bodies . . . Mavra Chang and her Cohorts Plotted an Impossible Escape from a World with No Exits!

    Winona: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream.

    Teacher: Well, Winona, that’s a paradox all right, but technically speaking it’s not a blurb, it’s a title.

    Winona: I just think it’s stupid.

    Teacher: Careful, you’ll be hauled into court for saying that. Ok, who’s left?

    Django: Could She Win the Right to Rule Her Kingdom by the Power of Her Sword?

    Teacher: Wow, that’s a good one, Django. A real subtle paradox. Brilliant!

    Django: Yeah, well, you should get yer ass in gear and we’ll trow back some keggers and boilo at the ‘DC or hit the weed like a champ.

    Not sure about this reboot of The Crystal Maze.

  12. ProfBeetle Says:

    Despite the lanky alien suddenly getting a drop on them Marcos became entranced with its gun. “Is that a Bennet Mk 1 Kill-N-Curl or the Tozzer knockoff?” He pondered, “If it’s a Bennet it’s very rare, and could really fluff out my hair in this humid environment…” Little did he realize their cold blooded foe was suffering entrancement himself, wilting in the megawatt force that was Silvia’s unleashed Sultry-Pouty-Face.

    Things were getting hot! And humid! Who would snap out of it first!?!?!?

  13. Anna T. Says:

    Is that Bruce Lee? With a machete?

    His standards have gone down.

  14. SI Says:

    The first rule martial arts, never take your eyes off just slightly to the right of your opponent.

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Find the Gates of Death — or the Wozniak of Life — or the Jobs of eternal social-media stasis!

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Yeah, I got nothin’ thanks to the mouseover text and the Blade reference.

    Except: aren’t her fingers freakishly long? The better to hold faceted thingy, I guess. And what’s with the pink ground mist? Another artist who isn’t good at feet?

    @DSWBT: Brilliant, yet stupid.

  17. infoqueen Says:

    I’m thinking Bruce Lee is actually conjoined twins with Bathing Suit Barbie: she begins where his left arm should be, and ends at his knee where her left leg should be.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @infoqueen: *Morbo voice* GENETICS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY! GOODNIGHT!

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Morbo: Transporter malfunction at the Gates of Death.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: Rayuela showed up late with her homework. 🙂

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBigT—Flout my deadlines, will she? All right, then—Grade: F (or “Nought”).
    However if she’s willing to try for extra credit, I might reconsider . . . .

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: what if she brings nuts for the class Monday?

  23. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBTeeth—well, if that’s Rayuela on the left, she can just leave Nut Boy home as far as I am concerned. Then, in a special conference, I’m sure we can work something out.

    (By the way, in this post and in #21, it’s of course the teacher writing, not me.)

  24. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Ok, I’ll be “that guy”…I can see her nipples!

  25. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “That’sss jussst like a mortal, bring a sssword to a gunfight…”
