Released in 2004: with guest Harpsichordist Lord Cholmondeley of Borrf-Woffordshire, who only used nine of the keys on his harpsichord, but played it with a part of his anatomy rarely employed for the activity.
- BALZAN! I see: like Tarzan, but ballzier.
- Question: Is there some kind of Fantasy-Action-Hero-Name-Generator? KARNOK! TOKNAN! BARFORK! HARSHO! KRUNKAN! RUBRIK! Because there should be.
- Seriously, what’s with the frolicking flat-tailed dragon? “Oh BALZAN! I wanna be your BESTEST FRIEND!” P.S. I hate dragons with insufficient wings.
- Let’s see if the back of the book gives us some insights:
- No, it just gets weirder. “Emblazon a path between hallucination and reality?” Like Tim Leary?
- I can’t help but wonder what technique “Orala” would employ to seduce BALZAN…
- Wait, so instead of a lame frolicking dragon, the artist could have painted a six-legged spider anthropoid? That’s a tragically squandered opportunity.
- I do like cats, but I have to say, “of the Cat People” just doesn’t deliver the formidable vs. “of the Apes.”
From 1978 comes The Penetrator: Mike Hardin (SUBTLE!).This book is really poorly written, but I had to get it- because between Mike Hardin’s extremely
tedious dangerous assignments he recuperates in a secret hideaway in a borax mine. Other observations:
- Boy, those guns are pointing everywhere. Not a sophisticated composition.
- The girl with the floppy neck in the trenchcoat and weird negligee has an itchy calf. Or she’s part flamingo.
- Lionel Derrick: Jeez, another implied erection? You got a problem, dude.
