    There’s just no END to the amount of Elvis impersonators.

  2. RJ Says:

    The gentleman with his arms crossed seems to have escaped from a Mills & Boon cover.

  3. Smith Says:

    I thought it was Simon Cowell on Galaxy’s Got Talent.

  4. Scott B Says:

    Wow. Four-armed reptile Elvis eh? That sets a pretty high bar.

    Also I think I caught a serious case of smug arrogance just from looking at that guy in the center.

  5. Jami Says:

    I actually see four alien Elvises (Elvi?) on the cover.

    Poor Buddy Holly, for all the musicians he influenced, he never gets impersonated by aliens.

    Man, that 2068 Comeback Special was really somethin’.

  8. Jen Says:

    I would read the @#^#! out of that book.

  9. Libraryman Says:

    Oh man. I have actually seen this in person. Just look at the smugness on this guys face.

  10. Seth Christenfeld Says:

    Going by the synopsis on Amazon, this cover MAY ACTUALLY BE ACCURATE.

    And I quote: “The plot moves briskly from underwater palaces to holy Graceland (a marvelously silly land practically overflowing with Elvii of all species, genders and sizes)…”

    I think I missed that episode of THE MUPPET SHOW.

  12. Domini Says:

    Awww, that’s a Romas cover. I’m fond of the covers he’s done for Anne McCaffrey’s Talent series and a few of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover books. I’m sure he couldn’t help the crummy subject matter for this one! XD

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    The guy in the middle is the anti-Elvis. He’s gonna break out into a Russian dance and dazzle fans into focusing in on him.

  14. Green Says:

    I remember reading this years ago – it’s still one of my absolutely favorite fantasy novels. An absolutely fun read. Those alien Elvis impersonators? They really are in the story. 😀

  15. paul Says:

    What Green said. It’s an enjoyable little book, and yes, Elvis is one of the gods of an alien pantheon, complete with appropriately-attired priesthood. (I wish the writer had done more of these rather than the huge tendentious books-by-the-pound he ended up with.)

    Garth Marenghi lives!

  17. GSS noob Says:

    I see this predates the “Smirky McSmugface” tag.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I see this still predates “Smirky McSmug”.
