Bwahahahaha!!!!! Oh my god this is the BEST. COVER. EVER! I like every single image, and every single word. "Sequel to The Time of the Hawklords"? The teaming up of "Butterworth" and "Moorcock"?
Also, how great is it that Moorcock had the idea but was either too untalented or too stoned to write the thing, so he had to call his buddy Butterworth away from the pancakes long enough to write the book?
Moorcock: "Quuen's of the Stoneage make me feel all delerious.... Hey. That'd make a great title for a book! Hey, Butterworth, come over here! You totally have to write this book for me!"
Butterworth: "What's it about?"
Moorcock: "I don't know, man, but I'm pretty sure it'll involve some flat-face naked chick with nipples like those security devices on clothes, you know, the ones they have to remove with that special gun-thing."
Butterworth: "Sure. I could write that."
(And in the world of TMI: why is my captcha security word "rexam," and why does that sound kind of medically disgusting?)
The reaching hand is what makes this cover priceless to me. That and the fact that the guy's mouth is open in amazement, or awe, or something. Like he can't believe what he's seeing.
'The Time Of The Hawklords', of which this is the sequel, is actually a sci if story which featured the members of the band Hawkwind including, at the time, Lemmy (as Count Motorhead).
When Hawkwind briefly broke up in the late 1970s, a number of them started a new project called Hawklords, though this incarnation didn't last very long before Hawkwind started back up.
a bit about the series here:
sound terrible, but it could be worth something to Hawkwind fans...
If you think Moorcock is untalented, then you need to expand your horizons. While i do find the coupling (lol) of his name with that pic amusing, making disparaging comments about an author you obviously have no clue about, is quite asinine. Tip for the unread sci-fi fantasy reader..Moorcock wrote the Elric saga, for one!
