JuanPaul Comments: “Not since Dune…”? You’re going serve up a softball like that to the GSS community?

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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.83 out of 10)

    Dune? Looking at the utter carnage depicted in this cover I have to go as far back as ‘Mahabharata’ for a comparison.

    We all suspected Tom Cruise dreams of the guy on the left, anyway.

    Sing along…

    Strike an empire
    Strike an empire

    Look around, everywhere you turn is power struggle
    It’s everywhere that you go (look around)
    You try everything you can to escape
    The pain of life that you know (life that you know)
    When all else fails and you long to be
    Something better than you are today
    I know a place where you can get away
    It’s called the Kerrion Empire, and here’s what it’s for, so
    Come on, Kerrion
    Let your body move to the hyperspace
    Hey, hey, hey
    Come on, Kerrion
    Let your body go with the space warp
    You know you can do it
    All you need is someone else’s imagination
    So use it that’s what it’s for
    Go inside, for your finest inspiration
    Your dreams will open the airlock door
    It…

    We’ve now had 2 of the volumes (the second and third) in this sago*, and might as well have the first. It’s here: http://www.isfdb.org/wiki/images/a/a8/DRMDNCRSDM1981.jpg.

    Interesting that the same lady seems to appear in all of them, but gets younger as we progress through the series. Also, they all have the suggestive spaceships with faces.

    * Old joke:
    Announcer: “And now we present a family sago …”
    Voice off: “Sago? You mean saga. Sago’s a sticky mess!”
    Announcer: “Well, have you read this script?”

    That’s what you want from Duu-une. ♪

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    I must have missed this episode of the Mighty Boosh.

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    So the power struggle is a dance-off? Inside a human-faced spaceship’s dream? Too psychedelic, man.

    Praise from Eric Lustbadger? Yeah, that’s going to increase my desire to read this. Suuure it will.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    Speaking of Dune, these two should be strapped into a couple of still-suits.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Shoes aren’t too hard to draw. Establishing whether it’s on her left foot or her right foot may be a little trickier, however.

  11. Francis Boyle Says:

    The novelisation of the sequel Pacino declined to appear in?

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Dune?!!!

    Squints at blurb, sees who said it. Oh, that explains it, the hack.

    Has anyone read any of these?
    Doesn’t “Don Punchatz” sound like a cartoon character’s name?
    Is this the finest use of the “interpretive dance” tag yet?

    Tune in next week for more of this sago. (AKA “frog spawn”. Thanks @L_L.)

    I have to award a GSS! to everyone today.

    GSS! with cluster to:

    THX
    ARY
    Tat

    for making me go “snerk”.
