Nigel R. Comments: 3-to-1 odds against you guessing which is the title.

Published 1996

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: 6.75 out of 10)

    Star shining bright above you
    Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you.”
    Birds singing in the sycamore tree.
    Dream a little dream of five random people you met at a D&D session.

  3. fred Says:

    Doing a quick count the title should be ‘Closed Eyes of the Tarot’.

    What’s the correct category for Sir Skullface in your count though? Ah, the fascinating little problems of gathering accurate data.

  5. fred Says:

    @Very 4 – I believe Sir Skullface is not a tarot but merely a decorating horror in the chamber of horrors.

    She’s clearly just woken up and is wondering why the hell there are five weirdos standing around her bed.

  7. Ryan Says:

    Love is CLEARLY in the cards, given the ardent glances of Captain Infinity and Cupid for each other across the awakening figure.

    There must be a source of wind directly between the toga guys, and blowing in two directions on a single axis.

    I’m sure this cover makes perfect sense to people who are into “symbols.”

    When Cilla Black tried to combine ‘Blind Date’ and ‘Surprise Surprise’ she ended up with ‘Surround Yourself with Sorrow’.

  11. THX 1139 Says:

    @Tat: And of course Our Cilla did a great version of the Ace of Wands theme tune.

    Standing Damsel seems to be about to deliver a subpoena to Sleeping Beauty.

    “We know you’ve been bitten by Nosferatu Giuliani, but we’re gonna get to the bottom of this Ukraine scandal if it takes Death himself to testify!”

    @JuanPaul: it’s caused by the heat of their lurve, as @Ryan pointed out.

    Ryan’s right — there’s major lust going on there. Cupid is about to give the other guy the Final Rose on “The (Gay Mythological) Bachelor”.

    @ARY: topical and amusing. Yon damsel is certainly the only one paying attention to Sleeping Beauty.

    (Beauty’s hair got caught up in one of the Toga Winds.)

    @Tweet Jane’s tweet about this is good.

    This advert came in my morning email. Where are the were-chihuahuas when you need them?

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    @THX: I was certain you were joking until I remembered that Bolan duet.

  16. Grumpyreaper Says:

    @Fred 5: Not a Tarot? I’m the one everyone knows from the Tarot! Whose name is in the title, eh? – Alright, one of the titles, – yes, the little one at the bottom, but that’s not the point. Those other guys would be nothing without me. Stupid suit of armour, I should have brought my scythe to that photo session, everyone recognises the scythe.
