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!

    Re-boot Knight Rider, with John Goodman as the voice of Owl.

  4. Alice Says:

    Jody Lee? I could’ve sworn Margaret Keane painted those owl eyes.

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @THX 1139: OK, you’ve just made any further comments redundant.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Wait a minute. I’m reading this title as “Olwk Night,” correct?

    All of these puns using the word “all” seem misplaced if one pronounces the title correctly.

  7. Raoul Says:

    More intellectual property theft. Mercedes and Larry should sue the Trip Advisor, Xyzal, White Owl cigars and Wise potato chip owls. Looking at you too, Hooters.

  8. Tor Mented Says:

    I see that Senator Elizabeth Warren spent some of her early years in the Pacific Northwest.

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    It loooksa as if someone did a piece of artwork for a ‘see how many owls you can find in this picture’ puzzle, then someone novelised it.

    @Raoul: I never got the point of the Trip Advisor one. An owl with a Brummie accent isn’t my go-to guy for a hotel recommendation. “I was awake all night and there were mice everywhere. Oil give it Foive.”

  10. JuanPaul Says:

    The first two books in the Trilowlgy are:

    Owl Flight
    Owl Sight

    Pretty fowl, right?

  11. Ray P Says:

    Owl at the Moon.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    TFW you’re repotting your flowers and some weirdo with a thousand-yard stare flies up on a giant owl.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Novel about an Owl published by a Daw . . . . Hitchcock was right, the birds are taking over!

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I submit that there is no Mercedes Lackey book without a cover that would score at least a 5 here on GSS (As maybe the contents would if we were that sort of site).


    @Tat’s apropos comment about the “find the owls” art
    The inexplicable, non-explanatory “description”
    That title font. Embossed for extra “class”
    The so-busy left side vs. the empty right side
    The egregious cultural appropriation

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Once you notice it, you can’t Haida that cultural appropriation.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: 4 (b) and (d) are completely impossible, silly.

    All the (b) are outwith the ability of even SF fans to suspend disbelief.

    I like when you do these little multiple-choice quizzes, though.

  18. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    All three seem to have the same eyes. I think they all have the same mother.
