Scott B Comments: Compared with the Fantasy People of “The Cache”, the Science Fiction People have proven to be much more dangerous at breaking out of their enclosure.

    So THAT’s what happened to Blue Mink

  2. Smith Says:

    Good to see the costumes from Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask got recycled.

  3. SI Says:

    Cool earth decorated football, but you’ve broken the window!

  4. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    They turned Alpha Centauri from a noun to a verb?

    I guess you could say things like “You better Alpha Centauri, or I’ll kick your arse!”

  5. Adam Roberts Says:

    I choose the latter option.

    His head looks like a lollipop on a stick.

    Someone give that anorexic eyebrowless waif a cheeseburger.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    For being so far away, Alpha Centauri sure has a clear view of Earth…

    “I’ll die, please. No, wait, I mean Alpha Centauri! What was the question again?”

  10. Ian Says:

    I think it is our turn to play Dominoes. I can match a Yellow and Red…

    See, that’s why their spaceship broke — you should NEVER use magnetic tape on an interstellar trip. Cosmic rays will mess up the tape and… you know. Science and stuff.

  12. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    This looks like a scene from The Planet of the Apes.

  13. Phil Says:

    Behind you! Earth!

    We need a new word for that frisson you get when you see on GOOD SHOW SIR the exact edition of a book that you own.

    Which is my way of saying “I own that very edition, and I got a frisson seeing it pictured here. But I can’t think of a word for it.”

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    In the future scientists expect the human race to continue to evolve and lose useless and out-moded features, such as their eyebrows and their left arms.

  15. Perry Armstrong Says:

    This cover is a 1976 representation of that futuristic concept known as ‘EYE-Pad’.

    … oh, and some bugger broke the screen.

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    “Honey, don’t forget to zip your bodysuit all the way up to your beard, it might Earth today!”

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Where is the other half of the reel-to-reel?

  18. Ray P Says:

    In 1970s feminist alternate world Muslim men wear the hijab and live on the terra-formed Moon.

  19. anon Says:

    @Anti-Sceptic: Could be that ‘alpha’ is the verb and this is a B5 novel.

  20. JJYoyo Says:

    If I have to go all the way to Alpha Kent listening to Ali G and some rando woketivist, I choose to die.
    However, the broken glass on the portal suggests life support has been compromised, and my personal choice is probably no longer relevant.
