    What kind of yurt has its own library?

    But it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one who watches 60s sitcoms on a phone when I’m supposed to be hitting the books.

  2. Max Bathroom Says:

    “But mum! Helen of Troy is too my homework.”
    “Don’t give me that . Do you know how much it yurts me to see you waste all of the sacrifices your father and I made to send you to Hogwarts? Knock it off with the astral pornography and get back to the books, young man.”

  3. JJYoyo Says:

    I think this qualifies for a “Behind you!” Tag.
    Also, the pedant in me says that room looks awfully permanent to be part of a yurt.
    Also no one looks Mongolian.

    “Are you winning, honey?”

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Darrin fantasises about a, erm, crossover.

  6. fred Says:

    If you’re watching porn, yurt really should lock the door.

  7. Ryan Says:

    “OK, now draw me a picture of a wizard ogling a genie balanced on a translucent phone that clearly shows me that you have no idea what a yurt is.”

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Until the fantasy phone company developed caller ID, phone calls by pervy wizards were a common problem.

    Fantasy writing 101: when naming places in your fantasy writing, just pick some random Asian or African word! Mental effort is saved and hardly anyone will notice!

    It’s a cozy mystery in a fantasy setting. Back cover at bottom of review.

    Jeffrey Toobin in the years before Zoom calls.

    Genie: “Hello. We have been trying to reach you about your car’s extended warranty.”

    Genie: “What do you mean you’re trying to get in touch with Mike Hunt? I’m not familiar with Mike Hunt.”

    Ooh, we all knew the publisher instantly.

    @Tat: And all that wood paneling and furniture! Must be a big damn yurt that never moves. checks Bad Fantasy Encyclopedia Ah, Maaaagick.

    @JJYoyo: TBF, I have seen a few yurts in the US; they were a thing among white hippies.

    Definitely “Behind you!” Waitress damsel is Behind pervy wizard; wizard is Behind image of dancer. He must agree with Sir Mix.

    @Ryan: Perfect art direction.

    @Bruce: GSS and well-observed.

    @fred: So the wizard is indeed very young, making comments such as @Max’s dead on!

    The cover and this sample of tv comedies, er, commercials are about the same vintage?
