    How many legs must a tree-cat have, if a tree-cat must climb up a tree?
    Yes, and how much shine must a Baen cover have before we can no longer see?
    Yes, and how many ships must a cover-artist draw before one looks like a wee-wee?
    The answer, my friend, is blowing up my mind.
    The answer is blowing up my mind.

    Is the six legged cat in the tree tries to ear the explosion or is it scratching a flea bite?

  6. RachelJ Says:

    @Zorahee. A space flea bite, I expect.

    What happens when the “Thesaurus” app gets stuck.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I’m sorry, the tail on that six-legged cat is ridiculous! Oh . . . .

  9. RachelJ Says:

    What we need now is a Weber-reviewed McCaffrey book to complete the circle.

    I want me one of those Baen symbol basil Chia Pet things.

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    I’m glad they didn’t miss the chance to adorn this cover with extremely phallic space ships!

    If there was ever a moment to scream “Behind you!!!”, this is it…

  13. Tag Wizard Says:

    Well panto’d, sir!

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Yes, yes, thank you! Yes, now my next trick. Nothing in the sleeve, no nothing at all. Now, watch. Watch the world. Yes, keep your eye on the horizon. Right there. But you see…Al-a-kazam! The world’s changed! Yes, no atmosphere, no atmosphere at all. Just shiny. Oh, so shiny. All shiny. Thank you! Yes, thank you all, you’re a wonderful audience.

  15. Anna T. Says:

    I say, good man, there seems to be something off with those ships!

    Seriously, there’s something weird about them that I can’t quite place.

    Worlds of Honor #5 – Changer of Litterbox
    “Brilliant, Brilliant …kinda smelly” – Anne McCaffrey

  18. L.B. Says:

    I guess McCaffrey thought “Shiny, shiny, shiny!” was too immature a statement. And continuing to love the bane that is Baen!

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @L.B.: Yep, Anne first thought “shiny” upon seeing the cover, decided it wasn’t good enough for the blurb, and grabbed her thesaurus.
