    It doesn’t look much of a journey. That alien looks like s/he is walking to the shops. From her/his expression, its a return visit, as if s/he forgot to pick up that tin of beans.

    Got it: journey to the SHOPPING centre.

    Right it’s been sorted. When I write a book I’m going to call it, “Lord of The!”

    Wow. I never knew there was a novelization of Q*Bert.

    Journey to the Civic Center!

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    This alien is part venus fly-trap, part eggplant and ALL business.

  6. Zycrow Says:

    The title is a command: [You must] journey to the centre! Or else this guy will put your face in his head.

    SI, be careful: Brian Stableford is only treading on the toes of Jules Verne. Your book proposal treads on the toes of Tolkien AND Golding!

    Rip-roaring action in the tradition of A PASSAGE TO THE MALL and JOURNEY TO CITY HALL!

    By the same author: AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY. (Blurb: in AD80, Phineus Foggeus must travel around the known world, from Dundee to Alexandria!)

    I thinking this alien swallows a lot of rain with the back of his head being that heavy.

    By the same author of “Harry Potter And”.

    The book isn’t half bad — although the “journey” is rather like an amble down a boring corridor after a HUGe buildup… A poor man’s Ringworld mixed with some silly Gateway inspired tidbits…

    Looks like someone used all the milk so Mrs. McFlibbert has to walk to the corner shop in her dressing gown before she can have her morning cuppa.

    In spaaaace.

    Aside from that, it would be a good cover if it wasn’t for those mad corners.
