Max Bathroom Comments: Definitely in the tradition of William Gibson’s Neuromancer, which has rarely had a cover that wasn’t downright embarrassing.

Published 1990

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: 8.60 out of 10)

    It’s a baleen beard. Maybe the gods are whales.

    It’s a Rorchach test for political wonks: which Thatcher-era Cabinet Minister do you see?

    I just like to close my eyes and contemplate my finely chiseled features, at least above the neck.

    I’m glad the title and author were restated by GSS, because between my aging eyes and THAT FONT, I’d have taken way too much time to read it.

    The blurb is… not lacking in confidence. @Max B has pointed out the only way in which it’s true.

    @Max, two in a row – were you dumpster diving behind the used book shop? How are any of us supposed to top that?

    @GSS E-N: Looks more like a flower. Sort of. He’s probably spent too much time at a garden store next to Spencer Gifts, given that he appears to be dreaming about an amaryllis-plasma ball hybrid.

    Nicholas Cage’s severed head goes flying into the Sarlacc plant on plant Tatooine!

    @FGK: Which is extra-glowy in black light, like the posters at Spencer.
