Alice Comments: I can’t keep track of who all the hands belong to.

Published 1986

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!

    His hands are lopsided when it comes to fingers.

    Has anyone made a rigid rigging joke yet? Because heh; rigid rigging.

  4. Cygnia Says:

    I am ALL for muting Anthony… :p

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Lillie – More like frigging in the rigging.

  6. Lillie Awesome Says:

    @Biblio – and that’s one heck of a case of crab she’s caught.

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    The book that dares to ask the question: what if ‘Life of Pi’ had been filmed by Troma in the 80s?

    You know it’s the eighties because Billy Zane has hair.

    @tat Troma would have the cat chew that guy’s head off

    She’s going to regret wearing that holster against bare skin when she gets chafed bloody.

  11. Francis Boyle Says:

    I’m not sure which is worse. Eighties hair or the idea of an amphibious sail-powered tank. Just kidding, it’s alway eighties hair.

  12. Ryan Says:

    @fred: At least he has ten fingers, even if they are unevenly distributed. Unlike the crabby damsel, who has lot of top and not much bottom in terms of raiment.

  13. J Greely Says:

    @Ryan: it’s been a long time since I read this one, but the finger distribution may be correct; the story’s about people (and small animals) whose bodies and minds have been mutated by prenatal exposure to radiation during space travel. Our Hero’s power is to be forgotten as soon as you leave the room, which he uses to bang hot chicks.

    Not counting the damsel, of course, just how many moons are there on this cover?

  15. Tom Noir Says:

    Somebody get that man a blind date with the woman from In the Cube! They can bond over their shoulder marsupials.

  16. Tracy Says:

    She is fainting because the crotch of her bodysuit is pulled way too tight

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Mute Piers Anthony, please.

    So the Awesome Galactic Future still has Brazilian waxing. Ridiculous grooming and clothing double standards continue for eternity. Even during the Desperate Struggle… against proper capitalization, I guess?

    Is she a mute? So she can’t tell anyone about Handsy Man there, and the kinky sex (for this is a Piers book) he’s having with her on their tiny boat? I hope the shoulder critter (good call on the shoulder mammals, @Tom Noir) and the eldritch shell (GSS @Raoul) aren’t involved. o_O

    Last thought: she’s liable to shoot her crotch in rough seas.

    I just have one question…Is it a full mast? 😛

    You need all the hands you can get on a skiff.
