    She has provided her own Space Sheep/C.S. Lewis mechanism.

  2. Tat Wood Says:

    They call her ‘the female John Norman’, apparently ( but to anyone from around these parts ‘Sharon Green’ sounds a bit… Essex. The resemblance of this cover to the painting in ‘Abigail’s Party’ doesn’t help.

    Is he giving her the barbarian version of the Spock Eyebrow?

  7. Rev Says:

    His muscles look painted on. Her boobs look glued on. He looks like Clint Norris. Or Chuck Eastwood. She looks like trouble.

    Her buff warrior friend better stick to a brisk walk or that knife is gonna slice nicely-toned leg open.

    Um what is going on with her hands? I know its possibly the least of her problems but even so…. 😛

    For the last time — HOW DO THOSE BRASS TIPS STAY ON??

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Saying “the female John Norman” is like saying “the male E.L. James”…

    Less Bettie Page and more sweaty rage.

    I actually find the damsels hair the most fascinating feature of this painting. It looks like someone stapled a black dyed sheepskin from a interior design magazine to her skull.

    Sharon Green does look very fetching. I don’t care if there’s a warrior within her.
    What’s the point of the old guy in a muscle suit?

  15. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    Her hair makes no sense, unless that little tooth necklace is holding on a bearskin cape.

    And I am just imagining the *POP!* noise when she takes those things off in the evening.

    Can someone get that poor girl a decent meal – her ribs are showing!

    Warrior guy there has some really nasty hypertrophic scarring down his chest. Either he’s had open heart surgery or was just very lucky to have survived whatever fight did that. Probably explains his expression because that scar’s going to itch like crazy most of the time.

    @Alessandra Kelley, as to her hair, I’m thinking maybe really bad hair extensions? Oh, loved the “Pop” comment, though maybe they’re held in place by double sided tape (which would cause a “scritch, string of expletives” sound when removed)?

    ‘The infernal banging had no trouble breaking through my sleep.’

    The man was a fiend of the nether regions, just as I’d always known.
    …and unfortunately the phrase refers to the very thing your mind leaps at,
    which is unfortunate because now we also know what the “within” in the title refers to.
    I can’t help thinking the ‘O’ should be an ‘I’ and ‘Green’ should be ‘Pink’.

    You say you’ve seen seven wonders
    And your bird is green
    But you can’t see me
    You can’t see me

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Incidentally…where is this scene set? The periphery of a forest fire?

    The inside of a badly-glazed pot?
