Tom Noir Comments: Yet again, butterfly woman is photobombed by that crafty Shrieking Smoke Head.

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: 8.00 out of 10)

    Even beautiful butterflies are capable of letting rip something toxic.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Betcha she swallows! πŸ˜›

    Watch out beautiful “there is a ghost after you

    “But officer, I am just enlivened with diverting witchery.”

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    That guy in the background is either holding a crucifix or a crossbow. Either way, Eve better flutter on out of there.

  6. Iluvm Says:

    Yeah! better flutter out before he spits venom on wings and renders you incapable of Flying. By the way how do you fly with those giant wings?

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling very high-hearted this morning!

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    @Iluvm I want to know he she scratches an itch.

  9. Lillie Awesome Says:

    Her poor rotator cuffs must be in agony.

  10. THX 1138 Says:

    Looks more like a high-farted quest to me.

  11. Iluvm Says:

    @JP he she disguises as a ghost and has the capacity to transform anything into ghost, while scratching an itch😜😜😜

  12. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I guess this is the incomplete and abridged version of All About Eve.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    I look at the Smoke Gargoyle and think: isn’t that Den Hegarty from Darts?

  14. Anna T. Says:

    She doesn’t have any arms. That’s inconvenient – how does she get dressed, with no arms and those wings?

  15. JuanPaul Says:

    @AnnaT She doesn’t usually get dressed, she accidentally fluttered through someone’s clothes line that morning.

  16. Yoss Says:

    Maybe the dress is what’s left of her cocoon. Of course that kind of thinking leads to wondering about corpulent semi-human caterpillars.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    [email protected]: Maybe the quest is trying to go on in the background, thank you very much, but Swallowtart and Fartboy keep diverting it and hogging the narrative.

  18. Bibliomancer Says:

    Something Wicked Out of That End Comes

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    With a title so much like ‘There’s Something About Mary’ I really don’t want to know what the stuff she’s wearing is.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Needs a “Del Rey” tag too.

    Background guy seems to be holding a crucifix, or possibly holding a sword badly. Tricorn hat seems to indicate he’s wandered in from the Revolutionary War (he’s not fat enough to have wandered in from a Tea Party protest). Paul Revere’s less-successful and very lost understudy?

    Eve’s shoulders are causing her such pain she’s farting out demons. It seems to have “diverted” Tricorn Hat Guy, not in a good way.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Something about Eve, man…I dunno. *sigh*

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I like the artwork — it’s slick and endearingly bonkers in a knowing way.

    But the blurb thinks it’s more sophisticated than it really is. “High-Hearted Quest”?? What’s that? Adventurers with bad blood pressure? “Diverting witchery”?? What the effing eff?

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Maybe the witchery could divert anyone who tries to obstruct the noble quest.

    Blurb looks like someone opened pages of Roget’s at random.
