Ryan Comments: So this is a spy novel, huh? Probably a cut scene from Die Another Day.

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: 6.80 out of 10)

    Something there that does not love a fruit stand.

    Well, if working as a “galactic industrial spy” involves stealing a steam-powered novelty zeppelin then I can only say you’re right there blurb.

    Jogging, spine lumbar stretch, cat-cow pose…these folks were being pretty healthy until dino-rhino showed up

    @fred: knocked over fruit stands are a standard element of the car chase oeuvre. Presumably they’re pursuing someone on a blue space hippo. (Cue music: )

    I guess the artist only read the first 3 words of the blurb and took it to heart. Because if riding (standing up!) and whipping a giant green levitating steaming fanged rhino-dino-turtle isn’t the act of a madman, what is?

    @fred: good cliche shout-out. Near the Space Fruit stand, there’s two guys carrying a large pane of Space Glass to the domes and towers in the background.

    It’s a fair bet he owns a T-shirt or sign with the slogan “You Don’t Have To Be Crazy To Work Here – But It Helps!”

    @Bruce: I think there might be another soundtrack

    This looks like the ‘after’, with ‘The Forever Formula’ as the ‘before’ picture.

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: Guess this guy decided he didn’t want to live forever.

    Is he being pursued by a Space Sheriff yelling “You in a world o’trouble now, boy!”
