Tat Wood Comments: Painted by Emsh during a Cortico-Thalamic Pause and with an introduction by Forrest J. Ackerman, just in case the cover-art didn’t make you run away fast enough.

Published 1964

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: 7.92 out of 10)

    I like how the little spaceship is saying: “screw this, I’m out.”

    Also, love the Emsh 🙂

    This is actually a good depiction of how I feel after a week of SXSW interactive.

    That guy really isn’t enjoying what’s happening to him, despite the woman’s promises that it would be painless.

    This isn’t the first cover for this book we’ve had on here, as I recall. There was another one, a while back.

    This is a painful enough cover, but I’m just glad it wasn’t for “The World of A-Null.”

    Well, I’m going to hail a cab instead – to get away from that cover…
