The ancient curse of snakefingersClick for larger image

Ryan Comments: The erotic yoga poses, the flower garlands, the hot baths, the poison ivy, the reptilian fingers puppet – none of it really got Chungar going like it used to. He had to admit that the thrill was gone.

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!

    The demon has a pot belly.

    So, it’s actually a thing. All we need is a menage a tree cover to complete the trilogy.

    Dhampire’: a portmanteau word comprising ‘Vampire’ and ‘DHS’. The ancient curse and evil power are the home-delivery daemons who use occult means to know wheen you’ve taken a day off to receive a package and find a way to arrive when you’ve taken a toilet break. Depicted on this cover is one of them placing the customer’s medicine delivery in next-door’s cooking-pot.

    That’s the beauty of UAI: If you miss say, “How to Draw Hands” or “How to Create a Convincing Sense of Malevolence” there’s always an entirely sane substitute.

    Hunky’s languorous pose comes from realizing that there’s no way the demon can stab him with that stupid trident. The center spike has to be longer than the two rounded outer prongs. All this one will do is tickle his tummy, which is perhaps the point.

    As evil idols go, this one is perfectly suitable for your lawn on Halloween. Or you could bring it indoors and serve candy out of the Bowl of Fiery Sacrifice.

    Is dancing snake fingers dude fading into existence, or out of it? Is he just getting going, or this the big finale?

    Demon really couldn’t look more bored, could he? “Another languid ghostly snake finger boy… ho-hum.”

    Are any of the beings on the cover either the dhampire or the man mentioned in the blurb?

    At first glance I thought the cauldron was the demon’s trousers. Like “The Wrong Trousers”. And pants on fire.

    @Tat: It’s even worse than that in America — it’s a cross between a vampire and DHS, the Department of Homeland Security. If languid boy is deemed “suspicious”, a thorough frisking may be what he’s hoping for. But he might also be imprisoned.

    @B’man: GSS! Although as @BC noted, it might be hard to spike the bits of food on that trident.

    @Bruce: All good questions. Although snake-fingers boy is only acceptable in certain neighborhoods.

  11. Hammy Says:

    Good thing the title has an “h” in it. I don’t think a dampire would be happy….

  12. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Worst. Halloween mask. Ever.

  13. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    For a change of pace, this cover is apropos for the book it covers. I read this thing back in the Reagan years and as I recall it it was a mishmash of over the top satanism, pseudomystical drivel and rather unpleasantly squelchy sex.
