JuanPaul Comments: The White Witch ditches Narnia for Death. Sure the steeds aren’t up to snuff and the Turkish delight follows her around everywhere, but at least that immortal lion won’t bother her.

Published 1972

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: 8.70 out of 10)

    Long necked horses in lingerie*. That’s one helluva weird fetish.

    These Liberty Mutual adverts are getting increasingly self-indulgent.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    I think those “horses” are running backwards.

  7. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The sun-god Ra wishes to make it clear He has nothing to do with this cover.

    Lovecraftian horrors: “Darn kids and their racing chariots! And this used to be such a quiet dimension too.”

    “Cut out all that ra-ra crap will you? We don’t care who wins. These frickin’ bits hurt!”

    I have a sinking feeling that this accurately portrays a scene in the book, like most of Kelly’s work did.

    @Francis: what does it mean when I can make that scan to a Rolling Stones song? “Long-necked horses, in lingerie… Long, long-necked horses, we’ll ride them some day.” Obviously your band should sing that.

    @Bruce: Of course he doesn’t. A) it’s dark and B) Ra used boats.

  10. Tracy Says:

    I’d read this just going by the cover!

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: In 1972, even more so!

    The BEN-HUR remake flopped.
