    OshKosh B’Gosh!

    Or even P’tang, Yang, Kipperbang!

  3. Tom Noir Says:

    When will this novel be released in English?

  4. Joachim Says:

    Umm, I think this monster-guy is freaky and sort of cool….

    Except for his sort of emaciated old man chest.

  5. drlemaster Says:

    I figured the title must be an anagram for something. The best I could find was:

    A shark? Oh, shark tsar!

    The single least impressive crown in the history of least impressive crowns. And it looks like it has got that Scaramanga multiple nipple thing as well.

  7. L.B. Says:

    Is this Klingon fiction translated into English?

  8. Sneaky Burrito Says:

    Is that creature blending into/encased into the goo on the wall? Maybe the goo is causing the creature to disintegrate (not sure what’s going on below the waist, maybe I don’t want to know…).

  9. Kwyjor Says:

    Clearly, the book is *titled* Brian Lumley and *authored* by a Ms. Khash-Hrossak.

    @5 drlemaster If ever I became a Russian gangster (unlikely, I concede) then I would want to be known as ‘The Shark Czar’.

  11. Adam Roberts Says:

    Also: I move you introduce a ‘Hrossak!’ tag. It’s sorely missing.

  12. Rachel J Says:

    Anyone actually *succeeded* in saying the title out loud yet?

    According to my investigations, Mr Tarra Khash– Hrossak! is the main character. Poor chap.

  13. AA Says:

    It’s like coughing up a hairball.

  14. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Can you imagine people messing with the author at book signings and conventions?

    “Mr. Lumley, what was the new title of your new book?”

    “Tarra Khash – Hrossak!”

    “Say what?”

    “Tarra Khash – Hrossak!”

    “I’m sorry, I didn’t catch all of…”

    “Tarra Khash – Hrossak!! *COUGH* Why do you keep asking *COUGH* about that title??”

    “Oh, just to see how long your voice will last…” [ducks blow]

  15. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Is the monster wearing a princess crown?

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    It’s just dawned on me that the colon makes it seem like a US TV series. Name, colon, job-description, as in ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ or ‘Walker: Texas Ranger’. But then there’s an exclamation-mark, like a 60s musical. So the point seems to be that Tarra Khash is the very last person you would expect to become a Hrossak and that this is a surprise to the expected readership. Is this the case? Google didn’t enlighten me much. Cthulhu the rom-com, apparently.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    OK, this one has been bugging me for a while.


    See? It’s all pretty much the same.

    I actually like this cover, though I wouldn’t want to be stuck in a corner at a party trying to carry on a conversation with the king there. I have a feeling a goodly amount of saliva slinging is involved.

    And I might add, I love the title. I’ve been trying to curb my use of profanity,(honestly, not a joke) and saying that aloud is a great substitute. Really, give it a try. Then watch everyone around you try to figure out what country you come from.

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    I like how he’s wearing one of those little three-legged tables that comes in the pizza delivery box.

    It takes brass balls to name a book after two sneezes.

    Come to think of it, “Hard Metal Top” might work better.
