I'll just go see if he brought the cat nip.Click for full image

Sometimes I stop and wonder, “what if man evolved from cats?”. Like that guy from that sci-fi show but much more furry! We could have them just standing around hugging, scratching and talking with a space ship in the background and a robed alien stepping down. And you just know that they are thinking, “What did this guy evolve from, San Francisco?” hahahaha.

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: 7.88 out of 10)

    … that just looks bad… those cat guys, well, dont really look like cats, the chin is so weird looking and all the pastel colours.

    Also the ship is really tiny, yet by the looks of things theres a cornfield inside it… nice …

    although to be honest it might not even be a ship. It could just be an extension to the huge lapels for the gay alien’s shirt.

    It’s in the shape of a fish! Genius!

  3. SI Says:

    Looking at her website I might have to look out for a few other of her books!

    And yes… the fact it is shaped like a fish does make sense. Cat people at war with the fish people? Fabulous!

  4. CSA Says:

    Well i guess that all makes sense now, the people who evolved from fish have fish shaped space ships.

    Just like how humans ships are all penis shaped

  5. JustinLeego Says:

    All those millenia of fish oppression. The cats have got it coming!

    So, if this book was a movie would it be in the catsploitation genre? Or entirely fishctional?

    argh

  6. SI Says:

    My eyes….my beautiful eyes…..you burned them!!!!!

  7. CSA Says:

    purrfect,

    this thread has become a catastrophe

  8. JustinLeego Says:

    It’s those danged sweetbillyp twits, gradually decimating my resistance to punnery and wordplay until I myself become but a shell of a crust of a puppet to the Dark Arts themselves.

  9. SI Says:

    Your words are making me vomit….

    And from that comes this:
    What kind of cat will keep your grass short? A Lawn Meower

    AH hahahahahaha….

    I’ll get my coat…..

  10. JustinLeego Says:

    Not if I burn it first mate!

    /throws petrol, lights match

  11. CSA Says:

    His coat is magjickc, with level 4 resist flames and level 2 resist petrol….

    unless you’re claiming you have level 5 fire and level 3 petrol spells, which i doubt.

  12. SI Says:

    Yea… and I thought he was playing a dwarf anyway… dwarfs cant do magic….. in my world….

  13. His Irateness Says:

    To reply to above; this book would be catsploitation.

    There’s a reason this series hasn’t been finished; bad cover-art not withstanding the author just trended into sex, sex and more sex… I think at some point the publisher actually read the latest book and put their foot down.

    Thankfully.

    “When Norman walked into the furry convention in his new outfit, everyone went silent and stared.”

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    If they’re only “Enemies” in scare-quotes, why is there a problem about forming an alliance?

    The cat-dudes have already chummied-up to human women and whatever that is playing at being a frog near the couple re-enacting the 80s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ TV series. The only animosity I can see here is between the cat in Marigold gloves and the naked cat-person on the right.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The quote’s a bit hard to read, isn’t it?

    ‘Woaded kissing & Triage scorbutus the torquing of a gear’d, leafy shat furry anomies into affines?’

  17. fred Says:

    The kitten needs a litter box quick.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @fred—Or a DiaperBox™!

  19. Tor Mented Says:

    What if I just read GSS until I need glasses?

  20. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @His Irateness, back in 2010: “There’s a reason this series hasn’t been finished; bad cover-art not withstanding the author just trended into sex, sex and more sex… I think at some point the publisher actually read the latest book and put their foot down.”

    So this is _definitely_ the butthole cut.

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    In the universe where GSS covers are real (yikes!), @B. Chiclitz is making a fortune on the DiaperBox™.
    He’s got his own planet of nubile women and weird architecture.

  32. GSS ex-noob Says:

    For sale, baby stronghold, never used.

    @BC: GSS! I bet that’s the title or setting of one of the Russian Dick Blade books.

  33. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: sounds like a hard-bitten detective story to me. Someone has to go down those mean stronghold streets (corridors?) and be not mean or afraid.

  34. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @GSSxn—I think that’s the name Blade gives to his “Fortress of Solitude.”

  35. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @BC: Is Dick alone without a nubile babe (or Lord L and his grease) often enough to need one of those?
