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: 6.87 out of 10)

    Oh, come on, Fritz Leiber, “Space-Time for Springers”–SpaceTime%20for%20Springers.htm

    What else should you put on the cover?

    Revenge of the Cat People

    Part II — they catch and play with the human diplomats like mice, then bury their remains in the giant litterbox.

    And then came the uncanny moment when a REAL cat scratched the book cover in the same spot as the image showed…

  10. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Did you not hear me correctly? I said I wanted to see more cat people on this cover! Let me scratch out the part that I don’t like…

    Let us paws and reflect on the work of Fritz Leiber.

    I was thinking it might be “Ship of Shadows”, which has a cat in outer space, but could also be “Space-time for Springers”. Fritz liked kitties, but they always appeared as cats, not cat-people.
