Dragon is unimpressed by robot buttcheeks... but will enjoy that apple!

SteveAsat Comments: You know what robots need? Buttcheeks. You know what they don’t need? Backpacks. I like to imagine that the dragon thing flits around by gently flapping his headwings and he just lets the big ones dangle as he glides majestically overhead.
Published 1981

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: 7.30 out of 10)

    Thinks: “Rrragh, how come I always get stuck with the weirdos at these parties?”

    Also, wouldn’t the last immortal be the first immortal? The only immortal, basically.

    That backpack was obviously where the apple that the girl is offering the nice dragon was stored. How else is a robot going to carry anything around?

    But it’s not all bad — the creepiness of the dragon getting so uncomfortably close to the child is drowned out by the migraine you get from the title font…

    DRAGON: Cynthia, tell Ro-butt-nik that I’m still not talking to him.

    ROBOT: But I’m gesturing persuasively!

    Having watched Beastmaster a gazillion times in reruns I would not be standing where the robot and little girl are.

    The dragon’s head winglets must give it extra stability when flying, which may counteract the poor vision it must have due to those cataracts.

    Surprise! Those aren’t wings on his body. That’s the outer folds of his cloaca!

    Seems it’s a sequel to a Young Adults book by Issac Asimov’s widow Janet, a therapist and authoress in her own right. Click for a short review of “The Second Experiment”, the original.

    It looks like a bizarre world where The Tin Man, Snow White, and Barney hang out.

    Robot and Girl have made their best play-doh sculpture yet.

    That doesn’t look like MacLeod at all. Where’s the Salamanca? They could at leasthave a llittle Queen playing. When you open the cover. Like those greeting cards? Eh, I was always rooting for the Kurgan anyway.

    Beyond the future we imagine…
    On the other side of the future we know…
    …is your luggage. And fongool to you too, Alitalia!
