Krzysztof Comments: This is the Polish edition of a collection of Philip K. Dick stories “The Eyes of Sybil”. I think he bought that chair at Eye-kea. Ha Ha.

Published 1987

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: 7.77 out of 10)

    Ooh, the little guy should have been playing basketball with the head of Baron Harkonnen. I bet someone got fired for that blunder.

    Peewee’s Playhouse got really weird towards the end.

    The Polish Fawlty Towers was a radical departure, huh?

    Typical Polish cover.

    With his left hand he’s trying to illustrate the phrase “tickle your eyeballs” in hopes that the cover will do the same for us. “Tickle” wouldn’t be the word I’d use.

    @Tracy: as you say, anyone familiar with Polish movie poster art ( ) shouldn’t be surprised by the artist’s reaction to “we need a cover that says surrealist SF.”

    How is… let’s go with “he”… proposing to do anything useful with that drink, seeing as how he has no head and the liquid’s floating away in zero-g?

    It’s not like the Baron can grab it (and as this post-dates Lynch’s “Dune”, I think @THX has it). I suppose the Earth-dribbling guy might be able to float after it, but he looks absorbed in his hoops practice.

    This is a little too weird even for PKD.

    @TW: If ever a cover was overqualified for “eye-yi-yi”, this is it.

    @Vlttp: Perfectly said.

    @Francis: Aha! So that’s the name of the course which replaces “how to draw feet” as one might find at a reputable art school. UAI certainly is international.

    I must issue a blanket GSS to just about everyone today. Fine form, all.

    I myself am obeying the recommendations of reputable authorities and staying indoors. As I live near unto Silicon Valley and everyone possible is working from home, you can imagine how slow my intarwebs are running. And all the local Irish pubs are crying in their unserved green beer today. I expect all the bars will be sad again on Cinco de Mayo.
