    From the bank that likes to say “Er, thanks but no thanks.”

    Well, it’s easy if you know how but it does take a few weeks so it’s not exactly instant. What? This isn’t a home brewing guide? Could’ve fooled me. I mean the beer’s right there on the cover and the rest of the scene is a pretty good approximation of what you’ll be seeing if you get it wrong. But yes, a SF novel about a mad scientist who invents dehydrated beer. I’m sure I’ve got it right now.

    for a lot of the readership, the prospect of instant large, prostrate, naked women was more appealing – and fantastical.

    The event that kick started the evolutionary degeneration of the Nac Mac Feegle, the discovery of alcohol.

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Everyone wants to make instant gold, but who spares a thought for the naked giantesses that get trampled in the process?

    Hardcover, 1964.

  7. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “Instant Gold: Frank O’Rourke” sounds like one of the many music records that were released in the 60s and early 70s.


  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Why is everything floating on or hovering above water? Perhaps they’ve finally figured out how to distill all of those gold molecules out of the ocean?

    “It’s a cookbook! No, my mistake, it’s a deodorant.”

  10. fred Says:

    Mr. O’Rourke also wrote the book that became the movie ‘The Professionals’.

    @fred: That tin looks like of … ashes? Dirt? Snuff? Not gold, that’s for sure, nor does it look like it would become gold if you added boiling water.

    @ARY: I thought it sounded like a greatest hits compilation album. “Instant Gold by Frank O’Rourke”. It has one song that inexplicably was a hit, one song you vaguely recognize, and eight songs no one’s ever heard, including Mother O’Rourke.
