Max Bathroom Comments: Who knew Kingsley Amis loved crappy cover art so much?

Published 1966

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: 7.53 out of 10)

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: waffle irons and cyborgs do not mix.

    I think that blurb went to the wells once too often.

    Come on folks, say what you really think of that cover. No waffling.

    The future is furious about how badly it’s been portrayed on GSS covers.

    I can but give a hearty GSS (with maple syrup) to everyone today.

    In 60 year old news regarding a perennial GSS favorite, go here:

    and scroll way down to the section “The Dead Past II” to enjoy the classic tale of Hugo ballot stuffing.

    To the tune of “Here We Come a Wassailing” (sort of)

    We enjoy mock-“waffling” this book, The Furious Fire
    Cover art has familiar shape, GSS regulars aspire
    Waffle comments, there’s a few
    And a nekkid lady too
    Yep you got me grinning ear to ear (ear to eeeeeear!)
    Wish I had a waffle and syrup to smear.

    (So easily distracted from the cover by talk of waffle…)

    I prefer my waffle fries with ketchup and without human (or even half-human) faces, thank you….

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Here we go a waffling among the cover black
    Here we go a waffling, and we’re not coming back!

    WTF come to you
    And to you LOL too

    @Max Bathroom: Who knew? Most people who’d read ‘That Uncertain Feeling”, I expect.
