    “You’re new to the scene, huh. Strip first, *then* restrain.” He shakes his head in disgust. “I bet you don’t even have a safe word. Seriously…some people should stick to vanilla.”

  2. fred Says:

    If there are illustrations after the last sentence I hope they continue with what happens next with the cover. I want to see what she does with his other leg.

    @The Blue Are Coming
    So that’s Twudy tying up the newbie in the jumpsuit and Weallian looking on snidely, then?

  4. Dr Bob Says:

    The lady has that preoccupied, head down posture and expression that indicates she’s too busy checking her phone to notice jumpsuit guy’s done a critical fumble with his bootlaces.

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    Lou Diamond Phillips and Marie Osmond tie up Michael Landon at the Great Wall of China.

    We’ve all had that dream, haven’t we?

    @Dr Bob

    I don’t think it’s a phone. I think she bought the bondage kit from Ikea and is just trying to make sense of the instructions.

    Your safe word is: Järvfjället.

    Don’t laugh it could have been Rimforsa.

  8. Tracy Says:

    The disgruntled victim is more 1990s George Clooney than Michael Landon, IMO. He’s annoyed because the woman’s efforts at shibakuri are so lame.

  9. fred Says:

    Yup, that’s Clooney. His agent probably hoodwinked him into this by telling him it’s a Michael Crichton production.

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I read this book when it came out, although not in this cover, and I don’t remember any bondage. But that was a long time ago and maybe I’ve blanked it out. Maybe in the shorter version in Analog? Definitely not this cover, even though by 1982 I knew GRRM and I don’t even remember it then.

    I think the weird purple sky is correct.

    Guy on ground: “First Batman and Robin, now this. I gotta get a new agent!”

    @Tracy: Marie Osmond wasn’t raised anything but vanilla, I’m sure. Sex in the dark with the magic underwear on, and only so you can have a dozen kids.

    I found a song that makes less sense than this cover – thanks Manfred Mann:

    Dying of he Light
    Trussed up Cluney dude
    Marie’s also tied up tight
    Dying of the Light
    Background’s muted pink and blue
    Big castle on the right
    Dying of the Light
    Written back in ’82
    Looks like Lou has won this fight…

    (at this point Manfred’s lyrics get very trippy, so I backed away slowly…)

    Rage, rage….

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Emster: only 2 problems with your otherwise excellent song

    1. Book first published 1977, but that’s harder to rhyme
    2. Bruce Springsteen actually wrote it. (“It’s deuce, like little deuce coupe!” sez he)

  14. Emster Says:

    @GSS x-n: Lifetime mystery solved! The song played a lot on the radio when I was a kid – at the time, the adult content was mysterious bibble-babble. Every once in a while I’ll hear a classic and realize why my parents were laughing so hard when I sang along with the radio on car trips…

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Emster: you’re welcome!

    I was a teen, so snickering was done by my entire peer group.
