Charles Comments: Cover art from the pamphlet: “You and Your Colonoscopy”

Published 1967

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: 8.22 out of 10)

    The first rule of the hospital in the sky: make sure you know which end of the digestive tract you’re sticking your head into.

    James White book covers have a total absence of sexy women, which I find amazing from a publisher’s ‘how can we increase sales’ POV.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    Anti-Vaxers take heed – the staff at Sector General get out of having to wear masks because diseases don’t cross to alien species. So anyone on Earth in 2021 who refuses to take precautions is admitting to not being human.

    Something architect David Vincent might have benefitted from knowing.

    Good book (series), terribad cover.

    If you squint, some of those blobs kinda look like some of the alien characters, but I don’t recall any of them being described as colon and sphincter-ish.

    @fred: There’s literally only one human woman in this book, and she’s Not That Sort. You can see her on one of the German covers, and that is indeed how she looks/dresses.

    @Tracy: GSS!

    Star Surgeon trying to figure out if this a job for a podiatrist or a gastroenterologist.

    A couple of those critters actually resemble aliens in White’s stories, albeit forced through some sort of surrealist filter, perhaps made from Salvador Dali’s mustache.

    A MAGA view of what the Covid vaccine turns you into. The figure in white is of course Dr. Fauci.

    @Bruce: “surrealist filter made from Dali’s mustache” made me quite literally LOL. Luckily I’d swallowed first. (I’ve learned not to eat or drink reading GSS)

    @GSS ex-noob: thanks! I’ll be here all night. When you’re done laughing, try the veal! (it’s in the background of the Richard Blade cover.)

    About galactic critter bums, and poking fun at our pandemic calamity
    Gotta flyin’ flea up high, owl-origami-space-anemone?
    Big green creature with the doc that’s got a lotta lips and a$$holes – oh!

    Star Surgeon
    Treating unknown beings without wearing any PPE
    Star Surgeon
    Tiny little doctor – keep yer fingers outta that walkin’ tree…

    @Emster: Continuing with our tribute to the Great White North…

    Star Surgeon dude-man,
    Get away from flea!
    Star Surgeon dude-man,
