Scott B Comments: I don’t care how far into the future this book is set — there is no way that outfit will ever be in fashion.
Published 1979

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: 8.84 out of 10)

    “‘Allo my Breeteesh shooms and welcome to Eurotrash!” Antoine de Caunes must be around here somewhere.

    Is that a Flavor Flav clock he’s wearing on his chest?

  4. Tom Hering Says:

    Fingerbeams. Mantyhose.

  5. Rachel Says:

    That hue and style of hosiery…he must work at a space-Hooters!

    “What time is it??”
    Sorry Bibliomancer, couldn’t resist…

  7. The Tag Wizard Says:

    Well played Tom! I was toying with a couple of digital tags (so sorry) but figured you’d have a winning suggestion.

  8. Tom Hering Says:

    @ Tag Wizard, you’re welcome. Love the pun.

  9. Lionrock Says:

    @Bibliomancer – Yeeeaaah Boyyyeee!

    “…and if I touch my balls like so, my fingers light up.”

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    Those are some shockingly large balls! My hat is off to you, Future Flav-o-Flav.

    It’s as if the art director said, ‘Draw one of those “is-this-a-violin-or-two-Anthony Hopkinses-arguing-with-each-other” optics tricks’, and halfway along everything went to smash!

  14. FëarõfMüsic Says:

    Yow!! Is there anything about this that isn’t ugly? Why no, no there isn’t. This cover is so loud my eyes have gone deaf.

  15. Stevie T Says:

    At first glance, the subtitle looks like it says “The filth landing of the Daedalus mission”…Put that together with Mr. Style there, and you really begin to wonder: just what kind of mission were they on?

  16. Rags Says:

    Aggghhh, what is seen, cannot be unseen…..My eyes feel so filthy!

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    He is dressed like a Harlequin and he is also the Tick Tock Man. I smell a Harlan Ellison lawsuit!

  18. Phil Says:

    I’m with Tom Hering: this is another fine example of Fingerbeams.

    Is it just me, or does this fellow look like the Duke of Edinburgh?

  19. Tom Hering Says:

    @ Bibliomancer, plus he has his hand on one of two round objects. Definitely treading on Mr. Ellison’s turf.

  20. Bibliomancer Says:

    @TomH – but Harlan apologized for grabbing that lady’s globe, so it’s all OK now.

  21. Tom Hering Says:

    @ Bibliomancer, if it’s a straightforward and unqualified apology to explain how he (A.) has always been politically incorrect, and worse, but for the most part a classy guy, and (B.) was being “childlike” and “puckish,” then yeah, it’s all okay now. 😉

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    This is what becomes of the little fellow when he finally reaches the Glory Globes at the end of the Glory Road! For some reason, he still seems disgruntled.

  23. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    He looks like a clown who’s missing his wig.

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Not that this doesn’t already have enough tags, but isn’t Eurotrash clown wearing booties?
