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: 6.73 out of 10)

    Pete Postlethwaite really went off the rails before he died.

    “I can’t afford a Jesus or Mary but I probably could mange a cheap apostle. Do you have a James the Lesser in stock?”

    Let me show you to your bottle.”

    @fred thanks for the link. I like his artwork.

    However, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the Galactic Supreme Court is not doing it for me.

    People in Bottles is the skiffy trope that just refuses to die.

    (I will try to get in touch with Elon Musk and see if he has any plans to bottle people….)

    🎶If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I’d like to do
    Is to number each glass
    And dress up real fancy and then
    Try to sell them to you . . . 🎶

    Some travel to the future using time tunnels.

    Some travel to the future in suspended animation.

    And some, like this old broad, do it the hard way.

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Is the novel as dull as the cover? Even the jewelry and ridiculous collar can’t jazz this up.

    I hope there are some stairs hidden in the random smoke, else the (naked?) people coming out of the Time Tunnel are going to have a very short trip.
