J Greely Comments: Every time I try to describe this picture, I get distracted by remembering what the aliens actually do with those fingers.

Published 1982

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!

    “So then sir, what’ll it be? Take a little off the back and sides? Right you are. Any holidays planned this year? Trim your beard as well, sir? Something for the weekend, sir?”

    The most unconvincing depiction of levitation in the history of levitation.

    If it’s any consolation the hand thing is move number one in beardie’s standard seduction procedure, so just just deserts. Been practising in a string of communes all the way back to ’68. He used it on the other two. That’s why they have that look. That and the pot. And the Quaaludes. Yeah, tell me about that time you became a universe.

    They must all use the same hair product as Stevie Nicks.

    Thames Television’s ill-adviised ‘Tomorrow People’/’Rainbow’ crossover left Rod, Jane and Freddie with deep psychological scars.

    That’s too many fingers, I’m out.

    As he struggled to teach hippies to levitate, X’an-Pazh began to regret getting a liberal arts degree.

    IIRC, this is the longest sex scene in the book; these aliens aren’t friendly, but they’ve got magic fingers.

    This scalp massage is soooo relaxing.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Soooo many hands so proudly displayed, some with an almost uncountable number of fingers, but nary a hard-to-draw foot in sight.

    Flies. Man who became a universe. Are we talking some sort of insect infestation? What, pray tell, exactly is in his hair? Is the alien combing him for nits?

    Shouldn’t there be a beard-related tag here?

    @J Greely: ew.

    Although our hipster space quartet often enjoyed lunch out after practicing for a night’s gig in the Padded Null-Gee Lounge, Silver Sam’s seven fingers meant he always insisted that they use the septadecimal number system when it came time to pay the bill.

    Divvying up the damn check always led to some godawful headaches…

    In the future, mediums are able to do seances to communicate with dead robots…so that’s what the ghost of Hal 2000 looks like.
