So... Can't help but notice you don't seem happy with my redesign of your space ship...Click for full image

Nanoalchemist Comments: The first 49 shades of grey apparently involved space furries. And giant furry based robots. And a bubble helmet, so you know it’s in space.

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!

    2010? There’s bad timing…

  2. Kim Says:

    I read the authors name as Insane Norman which made this a much more appealing read.

  3. Phil Says:

    I think Kusac is a pawn in the games of the gods. No, wait a minute; I’ve changed my mind. Kusac is the long-awaited Avatar of change.

    Final answer?

    Final answer.

    “Are you the Avatar of Change?”

    “Yes, I am the long-awaited one!”

    “Terrific. Could you break this twenty?”

    I’m peeved by the cut-off text at the bottom of the image. A SHOL… what? A SHOCKING BAD NOVEL?

    A curly tail must make putting on a spacesuit a real bitch.

    Does the giant catbot thingy have a single laser equipped nipple? I realise it’s in the wrong place for a feline but if you have a nipple that can shoot lasers I imagine you can keep it where you damn well please.

    Clearer image here:

    …revealing the missing text to be “A Sholan Alliance novel”… of course!

    So is this, like, the Furry sci-fi version of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY? (Oy vey! Cue the NSFW jokes…)

    I’ve just got the power rangers song in my head now. Not that I have ever watched such a thing… *coughs*

    The blonde is getting a pep-talk from a futuristic warrior who is the ultimate evolution of urban foxes. She seems remarkably unconcerned about the red energy-beam either hitting or exuding from her bum. Maybe she just sat on the remote and accidentally set Mecha-Kitten-Kong on a killing-spree. I’m also worried about what comes out of the hatch in its chest. A whole batallion of foxes in combat armour, perhaps. Or maybe the two having the conversation on a window-cleaning scaffold are about to go inside and give the Quorn Hunt the fright of their lives.

  12. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Remember those MAD Magazine articles where you take a piece of news boilerplate and just change some words and names to make it funnier?

    The same system would work on that pointless cover blurb too:

    “Is (1) a (2) in the (3) of (4) – or the long-awaited (5) of (6) ?”

    In the numbered slots, use any of these alternatives:
    – Kusac
    – Melvin
    – Barack Obama
    – Homer Simpson
    – Neo
    – Grignr the Barbarian

    – Pawn
    – Dork
    – Tool
    – Tax inspector
    – Plumber

    – Games
    – Pool parlors
    – Steamy baths
    – Waiting hall
    – Paper Rock Scissors tournament

    – The Gods
    – The neighbors
    – The Man
    – The Who
    – The little old lady who sells flowers

    – Avatar
    – Waiter
    – Pizza
    – Cable guy
    – Laxative

    – Change
    – Krypton
    – Petaluma
    – Mind-blowing wisdom
    – Cosmic flatulence

    Thunder Cats hoooooooo!

  14. retrotorque Says:

    Oh this is the first 49 shades of grey. I’ve read several books in the series and there’s a lot of male cat-guy on human and reptilian women.

    Kusac likes his blowjobs with teeth too.

  15. David Cowie Says:

    Is Kusac the mopey blonde or the commando fox?

  16. Cathryn-Le-SPAMMMMMM Says:

    Really good post. I’ve got a question. As a web site owner, just how long did it take for your website to be profitable? Likewise exactly what do you enjoy most about blogging?

  17. GSS Admin Says:

    Why thank you Carthryn.

    Well it took at least two weeks before the website became profitable but that’s mainly because I started to steal peoples lunch money around work. So I’m not sure if that really counts as the website.

    The thing I enjoy most about blogging is giving people opinions. People love the opinions. Went to see Oblivion the other night… it’s basically every single sci-fi novel since 1963, but with lots of what looks like Microsoft Surface. It looked pretty… I guess… but if you enjoy something with a lot of plot holes, I’d recommend it to everyone.

    Thanks for asking.

    It’s a GUNDAM!

    Is Lisanne Norman any relation to Spiney?
