Rick Deckard Comments: Great gift idea for race car drivers with a runny nose problem.

Published 1973

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: 7.00 out of 10)

    If you’re driving a ten-foot diameter reflective marble through a pass in the Rockies, the last thing you need to worry about is hay fever. The lack of bunghees securing the bauble to your flatbed, for example.

    Space Ranger finally figured out how to snort as much coke as he wanted without taking his hands off the wheel.

    Worst. Selfie. Ever.

    Looks like it was originally intended to be an ad infinitum reflection in the goggles, but Bruce gave up.

    What is he driving, a little red wagon?

    @fred: Goggles? I thought they were space alien eyes.

    @JP: Or one of those soapbox derby cars.

    Using the smell-o-vision while driving is the third most common cause of pod crashes.

    @ARY—If my ever-diminishing memory serves me here, wasn’t it you who, many, many years ago, started this? If so, it is not inappropriate that I ask you respectfully to contemplate

    It’s a head shot, so we can’t see the other tubes connecting down below.

    From the look on his face, I think the driver is using at least one of those.

    Hm. Almost appropriate cover for a re-publishing of “David Starr: Space Ranger”…..

    Or was that “Lucky Starr”? I read it too long ago to remember – before the entubation of Ranger.

    @Hammy: Looks like a repub of that book. I guess he got called “Lucky” for surviving this cover?
