    I read a Spider Robinson story just the other day. It started off well but pretty quickly headed straight into “author on board” territory. That was bad enough. I don’t think I could stomach six.

    Want a Spider? Take your pick.

    If John Malcovich hadn’t agreed, the Spike Jonze film would have been ‘Being Brian Murphy’.

    I’ll never understand how to play Cricket. But I like the new uniform!

    The Six Faces of Dr. Robinson?

    You know, being co-author of “Stardance” isn’t something I’d _boast_ about, but de gustibus.

    Antinomy, according to the alchemists, is representative of man’s wild/animal nature, so I guess we are supposed to be warned that SR is going to be getting his freak on in this collection.

    You laugh, but Spider paid a lot of money for Freddy Mercury’s Live Aid outfit. And Spider says he’s rockin’ it.

    The pickaxe? Well, when the basement plumbing breaks you never know what might emerge from the sewers.

    Another Checkered Demon wanabee floating in that pool at Spider’s missing feet.

    You can pick your friends. And you can pick your nose.
    But you can’t pick out a good-looking Spider Robinson head shot.

    I thought “How is it I don’t have this, I thought I had all of Spider’s stuff?” and then I see this is the only cover it ever had. Nuff said.

    I’ve met him a few times, and he has perfectly normal feet, not hidden in fog. Nor does he dress anything like that. So I give Mr. Kresek a hearty WTF.

    Although Spider did have a job guarding sewers, which caused him to decide to take up writing as an alternative.

    @Bruce: antinomy =/= antimony.

    GSS ex-noob: I plead sleepy.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    We would have also accepted a plea of “2020”.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    Somehow, this seems like the most apposite soundtrack (sorry).

    After this release, editors begrudgingly admitted that putting the author’s mug on the cover didn’t improve sales – no matter how many times.
