    “Geez, the static on this jumper!”

  2. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    The exhaust trails from those aircraft/spacecraft/whatever end at the rock column in the one case, and at the guy’s neck and shoulder in the other. Were they launched from those places? The perspective doesn’t look right either.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    No “font problems” tag? They had a lot of trouble fitting the author’s name in.

  4. Adzel Says:

    Bob’s new superpowers were working great until he suddenly needed to scratch an itch on his nose.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Includes THE TIMEGOB”?

    I’ll say.

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    That thing where you’re constipated and straining so hard, electricity arcs from your palms. We’ve all been there.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @FB—I think that’s how Elvis died. Electrocuted himself while straining at stool. Sad.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    Unless the plot is a time-traveller going back to 80s MTV clips for power-ballads I can’t see the relevance.

  9. Francis Boyle Says:


    Blasphemer! Elvis, being a higher being, actually managed to channel his stool energy into a teleport to the waiting saucer.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    Call me “Buzz”

    @BC – includes “Timediver’s Yawn”

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—I’ll bet “Buzz” loves to go around shaking hands with people and gets a big kick out of their expressions when the buzz hand goes off on them!

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    What does a Timegod need with a rocketship?

    @Bibliomancer: unless Timegods ejaculate ball lightning. (I admit to being ignorant of the natural life cycle of the Timegod.)

    If the duology becomes a trilogy and is then put into one volume blurb me that blurb Tor.

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    “All I want to do is run my fingers through my gorgeous hair without it hurting like f**k!”

  15. Anna T. Says:

    The only thing on this that I can see as having anything to do with “timegods” is maybe the mysteriously curtailed exhaust trails, as if they were just jumped in from another time. Apart from that, I got nothing.

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    @fred: Is that an invitation for me to write a blurb? Well … erm …
    The popular SF adventure trilogy packaged separately together in the first volume for this one time. It’s a naive domestic trilogy without any breeding, but I think you’ll be amused by its presumption.

    Hero’s hair: ponytail or mullet?

    Was (time)gobsmacked when I saw the publishing date. I’d have thought it was much earlier.

    I don’t see any relevance to time either.

    @L_L: They look cut and pasted, don’t they? The one doesn’t even reach the rock column.

    @THX: It’s all one font — more like “Kerning Problems”.

    @Francis: So the glow is coming out his backside and is, er, flatus on fire? (which is the missing-but-not-lost episode of “Mythbusters”. Seriously.)

    @Tor M: GSS.

  18. Tracy Says:

    That tiny spaceship appears to be shooting out of his hair… why?

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I can’t find this “M. L. E. Odesittjr” in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction…

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    You need to look under the proper punctuation.

    “M L.E. Odesittjr.,”
