‘It’s called the Loko Meme papers.’
‘The wot?’
‘The Koko Leme papers. I don’t know. I hate these titles. I hate Orko from He-Man. He terrifies my wife, and then she won’t cook anything but broccoli and listen to her jazz LPs on the stereo.’
Published 1974

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!

    This is neither the time nor the place for your “trapped in an invisible box” mime. To the end credits of Star Trek with you!

    – This is weird even by GSS standards.
    – Is “Lomokome” a quote or are we not supposed to take it literally?
    – Why is the art rippling out from the price sticker?
    – Is ‘The Winds of War’ about a barbarian with a flatulence problem? Because it should be.
    – This is why no one likes gingers.

    Let’s tag it and bag it.

    I think this Screaming Zombie Apple cosplay is *excellent*.

    I’ll wait for the miniseries.

    I am disappointed. The first alien being we meet is a Jawa?

    Wait! Is that her hair?
    Those loco meme papers seem quite effective!

    A chilling novel of man’s first meeting with alien beings

    “Out on the winding, windy moors, We’d roll and fall in green”. So this is what Kate Bush meant. The hoodie with the headlamps has been doing some serious clubbing, hasn’t he? He’s got two of those ink stamp things on his hands. Pac-Man is floating in the sky for some reason and is clearly asleep – you can just see his little mouth open ever so slightly as if he were snoring. All this rolling and falling has plainly been too much for him.

    @Jaouad: He’s not a Jawa. Too tall. However, a shoddy Jawa impersonator might just be on the money.

    Are we supposed to use air quotes when speaking this title? Because it’s clear that the green lady is attempting to escape the presumed madness that is this book cover.
