Thank you for making me climb this hill, just to see the next hill we have to climb. Idiot.Click for full image

Every man, or lord of the lands, needs a hairy companion. And what would they do together I hear your mind ask. Well they would go hill walking, dress in lovely princely clothes and watch the sun set together over the lands of… America? Wait… what?

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: 7.33 out of 10)

    I wonder what he is really pointing at. It’s sure not the castle.

  2. James Lovegrove Says:

    Yet more pointing. What is the point of all this pointing?

  3. CSA Says:

    Chewbacca : You see that fairy castle, the one with the sewers pipes out the side?
    Prince: Yes, what about it?
    Chewbacca : You see the smelly, green scum that grows around the sewers?
    Prince: Yes, I believe i do.
    Chewbacca : That’s you, that is


  4. SI Says:

    James, everyone needs to just point at stuff sometime. I suggest you take time out of your day to stand and point at, your computer screen, the office water cooler or some red meat in a supermarket. Soon it will become clear.. and you can join us… in the church of pointology!

  5. Simon Says:

    Yup, that really is quite camp.

    @csa ‘Chewbacca: That’s you that is’ LOL

    ‘Child, beggar, thief, prince’ – so which one is Chewie? I hope it’s the child. He’ll be REALLY big and REALLY hairy when he’s a grown up.

  6. Simon Says:

    BTW Does everyone else always find themselves craning their necks trying to spot books they know on the shelves behind the book question?

  7. CSA Says:

    I think Chewie is actually all four child, beggar, thief and prince in one.

    And yeah, i always look at the background books. More often that not though, especially in the 2nd hand shops i’ve not heard of many of the books.

    BTW the “that’s you, that is” format is from comedy sketches by Rob Newman and David Baddiel , video link , its probably a more obscure reference than i gave it credit for. But brilliant none the less

  8. Simon Says:

    Respct is due for your transparancy with regards to source material but had assumed as much (was one my favourite of their sketches). Which didn’t make it any the less funny.

  9. CSA Says:

    Cheers. I’m training to be an accountant, so transparency is what i do. Oh god i’ve reached a new low… an accountancy pun?

  10. Adam Roberts Says:

    The title is VERY OBVIOUSLY The Chronicles of Scat; and both parties on the cover are very obviously engaged in scat singing.

  11. Adam Roberts Says:

    Either that, or the title is just The Chronicles of Scat, and I omitted the correct html coding to turn off the italics. [sigh]

  12. Karl Says:

    Glad to see the sci fi set embracing “bear” fiction, which is better than Baen’s fiction.

  13. Stan Says:

    …and pick a font that makes the title look as much like “The Politics of Scat” as possible. We need to increase sales to the creepy pervert sector!

  14. Brycemeister Says:

    A well heeled post-apocalyptic (yes, it’s an assumption from the cover) always has the proper shampoos and sprays in the wasteland for a truly magnificent almost mullet. Perhaps it should have been titled ‘Mullet Of The Abyss’

    He’s obviously pointing out where his stylist lives.

    ‘Hey, Uncle Scar, guess what?’

    ‘I despise guessing games.’

    ‘I’m gonna be King of Pride Rock.’

    ‘Oh. Goody.’

    ‘A child, a beggar, a thief and a prince just showed me the whole kingdom. And I’m gonna rule it all.’

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Enough with all these Chewbacca covers, I’d like to read a book written by the man himself:

    The autobiography of Chewbacca

    Chapter 1: My birth

  19. Jon K. Says:

    “A child, a beggar, a thief and a prince”? Isn’t there a song with lyrics like that?

    Oh, and why is Prince hiding in Chewbacca’s armpit?

  20. GSS noob Says:

    Okay, a Wookiee with a lightsaber, and a Gibb brother with tights and a cloak.

    Nothing about this says “future America”.

    Also, they’re at least two characters short, unless Gibb there is a prince and a child, and Wookiee is beggar and thief. And which one of them is Scar? The hairy bloke, I suppose.
