Leaping to the stars! That’s what I am calling it but I was kinda thinking that we could just have a man in a jumpsuit and a women leaping up some sort of engineering shaft. Not quite the stars but I am sure the buyers will appreciate that we included the leaping part!

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: 6.31 out of 10)

    it makes perfect sense in the context of the book.

    -“hey honey, you know the way there is no gravity in the shaft leading to the fusion core?”
    -“let’s leap over it, we’ll wear our tight jumpsuits, and ill do a sweet-ass dance as we’re flying in the air… the boys watching the security cameras will love it and we’ll get on youtube”
    “omg, lolz… we’ll literally be leaping into stardom”

    … its not a direct quote from the book, but its close

    “Angels Cry Too.” Enough said.

    Bonus points if it’s a deliberate mis-spelling of “Angels Cry Two”

    No, you’ve got it all the wrong way round. These two have been floating in space, posed, for aeons. A civilisation of intelligent tube-worms is leaping to the stars around them.

    A sequel to “jumping off the planet”, presumably to be followed by “catapulting outta the galaxy.”

    Misprint: it’s actually Leaping UP the STAIRS, because they’re excited about bedtime.

    Based on the BBC series ‘Strictly Come Leaping’.

    More like “Falling Down the Well”, amirite?

    The SW reference is obviously intended by Mr. Royo, but he’s managed to make it overly dull.

    The dude seems to be staring straight ahead and not down the damsel’s shirt.

    @ARY: You must be this tall to ride this ride.

    GSS to @Bruce.

    But for one wrong preposition, David Gerrold could have had a huge TV reality show hit.

    Looking upon this again, I could only think “Leapin’ stars, Daddy Warbucks!’
