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: 7.91 out of 10)

    That’s definitely not Minnie Pearl.

    “What, me worry?”

  3. JuanPaul Says:

    “If I stand close to the camera, my sword looks bigger!”

  4. fred Says:

    Dick has been playing with his blade so much the handle is coming loose from the
    tang. But he does look happy.

  5. Lillie Awesome Says:

    If Raoul is correct in his assessment, then the 500-foot woman in the background must have been an early assignment.

    Where in the World is Bibliomancer?
    Just arrived by train in Brussels. Eating a traditional hearty lunch of Belgian waffles and brussel sprouts.

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    Are you going to leave the house with your skirt that short young… uh… man??

  8. Francis Boyle Says:

    Five hundred foot tall topless go-go dancer. This can only mean one thing —

    We’re going to get more Dick. Whether we like it or not!

  9. fred Says:

    Don’t know if this page has been linked before. Pearl of Patmos is included. Fun page.

  10. Alice Says:

    I’m surprised Good Show Sir waited three days to whip out a Dick.

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    It’s almost as if Blade wore a skirt that was too short on purpose. Though I have NO sensible explanation for why any man would do that.

    Nope. There’s no possible explanation for a butch fantasy hero coyly displaying his gluteus maximus underneath a peek-a-boo skirt…

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @5, @8: Dick Blade vs Boobzilla? Will Ultra-Bare-Ass-Man arrive in time to show Dick Blade how to grow to giant size?

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Aw, yeah… DICK!

    Haven’t seen him in a while.

    He’s going to need to be a lot taller to take on that giant naked woman either in battle or bed (or both, as so often with him). Is that what his camera take is indicating? Like that time Coyote caught Road Runner, but after RR was giant?

    If he does grow, the poor people of the ravaged city are going to get a terrifying view under that tiny skirt. Nobody wants to see Dick’s equipment that large.

    @fred: Good link. Notice how no one lasts more than about 4 books in reviewing Dick before they just give up?

  14. Francis Boyle Says:

    A good link indeed. It was particularly pleasing to discover that our current masterpiece includes a character called Nob. I assume the ‘k’ is silent even in the written form.

    The Blade’s Pearl

    Perle, plesaunte to pryncely Blade
    So manly clothed in mini-skirt so sheer,
    Oute of Oryent, like Chinese GSS,
    Ne proved I never her precios pere.
    So rounde, so reken in suche araye,
    So smal, so smothe her sydes were,
    Wheresoever I jugged gemmes gaye
    (For Blade doth sometimes swinge that way)
    I sette hyr sengeley in synglure.
    Allas, I leste hyr in an erbere;
    And so I seke her evermore
    Mine blade is set for all luf-daungere
    To have that god-damned Perle once more.

    (apologies to some long-dead anonymous Medieval bard)

  17. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    It will be “death by Snoo Snoo” for Blade!

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @A-S: Usually it’s the girls Blade snoo-snoos who die. So that’d be a nice change.

  19. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    @GSS ex-noob….I think we have different understandings of what “snoo snoo” is.

  20. pulpfiles Says:

    I’ve finally gotten around to a review of this book. Does it really contain giant women? How short IS Blade’s skirt? Do any snoo-snoos meet an unfortunate fate? All this and more in the latest Pulpfiles review!

  21. THX 1139 Says:

    Sterling effort, @pulpfiles, I’ll never look at a Blade cover the same way again knowing what he drank in this.

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Pulpfiles: Great to see you back in action. You may have set the record for “Person who could stand to do the most reviews of Blade”.

    Fabulous review as always. Your nicknames for Dick are very clever. And I concur with THX: ewwww.

    Hybrid bazongas! Improbable sex! Eerie coincidences! The word “penetrailia”! Scrotum electrodes! And that’s just the first couple chapters.

    22 comments from the GSS experts and I’m still no wiser… Naked giantess in the background IS Pearl, or only on the cover to increase sales to the teen male demographic? Or… both?
