Raoul Comments: If seems, for this Earthling, the creatures from another world are women.

Published 1969

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: 7.71 out of 10)

    This novelty cereal will never catch on.

    Not sure if I like this reworking of Little Women.

    In space these terrible miscalculations of scale are pretty commonplace according to a book I read once.

    The nail salons on that other world are amazing.

    Not another Arthur Conan Doyle and the Faerie pastiche.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    He has women in the palm of his hand.

  7. Raoul Says:

    @Tor – Ha ha ha

    “Hey, when I wished for four swingin’ chicks eating out of the palm of my hand, this WASN’T what I had in mind!”

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    all right, I’ll bite…

    What Putin promised Trump.

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    Hmm… the women’s bodies are lovingly detailed, but the face is blurred out. Priorities.

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tom Noir: further proof that this artist considers women to be aliens?

    Was it that this guy was reassembled via lots of tiny tiny women? Serving as a climbing structure for tiny women, of whom he could see their Sir Mix anatomy, but they were too small to shag?

    I know the title font was playing off the title, but it just looks like the cover has a crack in it, or the yellow ink’s falling off.

    A hearty snicker to B’mancer, fred, Tor, and Tracy.

    “Was it that this guy was reassembled via lots of tiny tiny women?”

    @GSS ex-noob: you mean like Swarm [1], only tiny women instead of bees? OK, that’s going in the Bad Dream kit…

    @Tor Mented: I’m afraid you have the metaphor the artist was going for exactly right.


  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    @X-noob – Including the title I’m counting three cracks on this cover.

  14. Tor Mented Says:

    Women of GSS, you missed one. You could have said, “I read the title as ‘The Reasonable Man’ and knew right away it was fiction.”

  15. B.Chiclitz Says:

    Finally an artist who aced the “Hands are Hard to Draw” class at the UAI. Didn’t do so well in the “Faces” seminar, though. Got a B+ in “Bums.”

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    @BChiclitz: No no, I hear he assed the exams.

  17. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    Is this a sequel to The Demolished Man? (drum roll, cymbal, wait for applause, deathly silence)

    @Tom Noir— 😉

    Boy do these girls like hand-jobs 😀

    No, girls! Don’t touch that hand, you might get the corona virus!
