Jen Comments: You know, it’s been a while since I’ve read this, but you’d think I’d remember the part with the giant mecha vs. super soldier race. And boy, is that shiny.

    So … shiny …

    It looks like a baked potato wrapped in foil and about to go in the oven.

    You know, I don’t think he can straighten up in that outfit.

    Ah I see he went for the Crotch Enlarger 2000 space suit (TM).

    I dunno, by the standards of Andre Norton and Baen books this is positively Art!

    I’m assuming that this is an omnibus and those subtitles are the two component novels. But, it’s much more fun to believe that it’s a single book called “The Defiant Agents Key Out Of Time,” which I’m guessing is the story of an FBI branch which resolutely defaces automobile paint jobs in a syncopated manner.

    Now let us take this massive microscope and observe Buzz Lightyear.

    He sure has a satisfied smile on his face…

    I’m surprised there’s not a single TING on this cover!

    That’s a cool spacesuit. Hopefully he doesn’t actually have to move in it.
