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!

    Two civilisations meet–and one thrusts into the other’s ear!

    Is that a lettuce head next to the fellow’s head?

    Additional: We’ve seen that title before!

    “Son, you got an iguana on your head..”

    “Drive, old-timer.. ”

    Do iguanas even HAVE civilization? I can understand how, all things considered, one might wear flares into war, what with this being published in ’66, but do iguanas (even civilzed ones) wear trousers?

    I’ve heard of the reptilian brain in humans, but not the reptilian Brian.

    Let’s not forget ‘Return of the Jedi’, in which the Rebel Alliance had such faith in a squid with flares that they let him lead the assault on the Death Star.

    I always used to wonder about the giant iguanas in the Buster Crabbe ‘Flash Gordon’ – were they the true rulers of Mongo and were Ming’s pretentions to be ruler mere braggadocio?

    ‘Marlon, you’ve got an iguana rogering your ear.’

    ‘…mumble mumble mumble…can’t hear you….*hoarse breath*….mumble mumble iguana…mumble muble mumble…’

    I think the iguana has just climbed that fellows head to get away from the stalk of corn that is attempting to molest it.

    I decided to ask our pal Google if this book ever got a decent cover.

    As almost always happens here on GSS, the answer is: NO.

    See for yourself.
