Charles Comments OK, he’s hypnotized. Now let’s get him to rob the Petsmart!

You might remember this from here.

Published 1962

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!

    H H Holmes. Not the name I would use.

    H H Holmes was A P White, aka Anthony Boucher.

    An out-take from the ‘Hunting High and Low’ video: Morten turns into a racoon

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Little known fact: Morten may or may not have turned into a racoon but Catseye was the little known New Wave/furry band from 1981 he fronted before he was in before A-Ha. I think this was the cover for one of their EPs. How the hell it turned up in 1962 is anyone’s guess.

    I guess the crazy cat lady down the street finally found a boyfriend.

    Repeat after me, human. “It’s dog-hunting season!”

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    There was an apostrophe in the title, but the cats started playing with it and it ended up under the fridge.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Another cleverly edited blurb. The original: “Admirably conceived and written, should, like any decent published book, fascinate young or old readers, but it probably won’t.”

    Not to be confused with

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred: or this

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Um. Well, it’s illustrative of the story, which the previous cover here wasn’t?
    And don’t miss the original cover, it’s worse than both!

    I think the biggest problem is the eyes on the hoomin. It takes him from “determined hero with animal helpers” to “crazy hermit who hoards animals” (as @daard23 alluded to).

    Maybe that wacky monkey put blacking on the eyepieces of his binoculars?
    (Wiki sez it’s a kinkajou)

    @Paradoxos is correct: White/Boucher used the name fully aware of who he was

    GSS: my main source of info on Europop and old British TV.

    …and foxeye, and, I dunno, meerkateye?

    @THX 1139:

    @GSS ex-noob: nah, the weird eyes are probably supposed to indicate “mutant/half alien/whatever with strange powers, persecuted by AUTHORITY”; the young folks are supposed to eat that sort of crap up, right?

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Maybe he just doesn’t get enough sleep, what with all those animals on him.

    Regarding the comment, I went to Petsmart today and was not beset by any monkey/meerkat hypnotists. Although there were some cute kittens being adopted.

    “You will Like and Share my cat videos… or else…!!”

    @ARY: “And the monkey/meerkat videos, and anyone who thinks they’re smart by asking ‘what does the fox say?’ gets the blaster RIGHT AWAY!”
