Bibliomancer Comments: “No puppet. No puppet. You’re the puppet!”

Published 1970

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: 7.46 out of 10)

    The call of the wild: “Oah-ah-ah-ah-aaaaout of copyright!”

    “Well, Lord of the Jungle, Lord of the Rings, and Lord of the Flies were already taken. So I had to settle for Lord of the Trees.”

    Yup, if Bruce Wayne grew up as Tarzan he would still be dark and broody.

  4. fred Says:

    Other cover, Farmer doubled himself.

  5. THX 1138 Says:

    Are we sure that’s not Dickie Blade – in a backless loincloth?

    Oooh, I love twenty questions!

    “Okay, are you a man?” “No.”

    “Are you a beast?” “No.”

    “Are you a puppet of the world’s oldest conspiracy?” “Dammit.”

    Nice to see the “weird pecs” tag so skillfully deployed. His torso kind of looks like a Ninja-turtle face (with the man-nips as eyes).

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Lord of the Fleas.

    The World’s Oldest Conspiracy? Global Warming’s a myth and we’re still in the ice-age, all the mammoths have been hidden by Freemasons.

    (It fits – he’s got an apron and no trousers. And everyone knows jungles don’t exist, Uganda’s all tundra.)

  10. JuanPaul Says:

    It looks like he just ate some bad berries.

  11. Bibliomancer Says:

    Oh, Lordie.

    @THX – If this is a Dick Blade book we could retitle it Jeffrey Lord of the Trees

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    I just looked at fred’s link (thanks for posting it):

    We have a Tar-sham tag, but what do we call a fake Doc Savage?
    Not Savage? Ad Hoc Savage? Knock-off Savage?

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    @ Tor: Doc Stroppy – Man of Spelter

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor M—

    what do we call a fake Doc Savage?

    Er, Doc Savage?

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Weird pecs, weird abs, incredibly weird whatever’s between the two, odd knees.

    This is another of the Tar-sham and Doc Faux books, isn’t it? Ewww.

    Am tempted to answer the cover question with D) All of the above.

    @Raoul (2): Also taken: Lord of the Dance.

    @THX (5): No nekkid babe on the cover, can’t be Dick Blade. The build is very weird, and it doesn’t look like the loincloth is concealing something of the size of Blade’s, er, blade.

    @Tat(9): His apron’s not big enough, and has no Mystic Symbols.

    Is that loincloth backless, and is the knife without a sheath? Yikes. Ow.

    Good to have new content again.

  16. fred Says:

    If marionettes are included in the puppet category then he’s a puppet.

  17. Anna T. Says:

    That’s an . . . interesting . . . set of chest muscles.

  18. Bruce A Munro Says:

    D: all of the above.

    Greenpeace needs a better spokesperson.
