Rick Deckard Comments: “If I said I didn’t love you I’d be lion”

You might remember this series from here and here.

Published 1977

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: 8.64 out of 10)

    And they starts to have a row, she said,
    “You can’t even see straight now,”
    He said, “I can see straight, you don’t have to shout.”
    He said, “I can see clear as a dye,
    that cat coming in’s only got one eye.”
    She said, “That cat ain’t coming in, he’s going out.”

    Thank you Benny Hill.

    “Lion rampant on a damsel starkers” is my family coat of arms.

    “God, Leo, eat a tic-tac. Your breath reeks!”

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I have to admit even I am offended by the lion-testicle-damsel-thigh conjunction.

  6. Ray P Says:

    The unabridged story of Aslan and the White Queen.

  7. Raoul Says:

    What’s the little stage they’re on? Are they in a dome? Is that a forest or a city of skyscrapers? WTF?

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    In the ship in the background, there’s a guy looking through a telescope with this look on his face: 😯

  9. Yoss Says:

    By the looks of that hand, she might be in the process of transforming into some kind of salamander hybrid.

  10. Alice Says:

    Geez “people”, close the drapes on that dome.

    The final score is…..

  12. Anna T. Says:

    In the future, people will live in domes, making it all the easier to spy on people’s secret bestiality encounters.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    Her underarm deodorant must be something special

  14. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Tat – Her perfume is Gazelle No.5

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer— 😉

    BTW, I think his name is actually Harvey Lionstein.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I, uh… wait, wut?

    Are the people in the aircraft above getting more of an eyeful than they want, or is this a deliberate flyover by pervs? Perhaps Discovery Channel After Dark?

    Why is the dome set in a forest of aluminum Christmas trees?

    Shouldn’t there ought to be, er… more in the region of the damsel’s knee? Lion-O seems to be lacking equipment.

    @Ray P (6): That was, in fact, a Gaiman story. This would be a perfect cover for that. For an anthology compiled years before that? Notsomuch.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    And while we’re talking bad romance, here’s a terribad font I came across today. Top part of the cover is fine, but then you get to that last word…

  18. Tor Mented Says:

    Could be a man in a lion costume. Could be a lion in a human mask. Could be the type of cabaret show you might see in pre-Castro Cuba.

  19. Innocent Bystander Says:

    I would think C.S. Lewis would have been more appropriate than space sheep since this is “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” right? Ah, never mind it… seems we’re missing the wardrobe.

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is this a case of “You can’t see the forest for all the trees” or “You can’t see the city for all the skyscrapers”…?

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Innocent Bystander: GSS!

  22. Ray P Says:

    @ex-noob A Neil Gaiman story you say? I’m not surprised in the least.

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Ray P: “The Problem of Susan”. Available free online. And it’s very good, if a little disturbing at the end where — this…

    I wonder if young Neil saw this book at an impressionable age?

  24. Bruce A Munro Says:

    It seemed at first that her “it’s not bestialism if they can talk” defense would work, but then they brought in the parrot.

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Hey, lion guy, I can see Uranus!
