It's a very realistic puppet. Except it has two left eyes.

They look quite fetching to me, but then I'm a far-sighted middle-aged woman who doesn't get out much.

Anyone else thinking about the old TV show, Dinosaurs? And the part of Howard Handupme is played by . . .

I thought the picture might actually be poster art for BATMAN AND ROBIN: UNMASKED AND READY TO GET MEDIEVAL ON YOUR ASS.

It looks terrific, and it just showing up out of the blue was definitely the highlight of my week. You're a doll.

Thanks a heap.

After this one hits the stands, I'm sure to be getting a call from GQ. Truly frightening in every way. If Minz got a kick out of the cover, wait till he gets of whiff of my interview. Thanks for posting it John. I just got back from four days at the beach and hadn't seen it. No doubt they'll be flying off the shelves. And what could be better than to be posed with Mr. Irvine. What's that background, by the way?

That background? I'm assuming it's the surface of the Great Brain, somewhat yellowed, replete with veins and vessels, from which all art doth spring...

You two look a lot like the ones who come knocking at the door late at night when people run up the kind of karmic debt they can't repay.

Quite disorienting. When I see a cover like that I expect to find Forrest J. Ackerman's name on the masthead.

It is a close-up of the detail on Mr. Ford's Japanese fan.

Hey, Mike, did you have a story in Weird Tales recently? I was in the bookstore about a week ago, just passing through to meet my wife and have a cup of coffee, and I noticed out of the corner of my eye, your name on a magazine. Didn't have time to stop then. When I went back to snag it today it was gone. Is this something I truly saw or was I hallucinating?
Yes, Rick, All Hail the King of Zembla!!!!

Boweski,

The King has learned to stay indoors when tomatoes are in season. You understand.

I'm still showing people the Zembla take on Limbaugh's divorce.

Jeff, yep, I actually had a story in Weird Tales, "The Sacerdotal Owl," which first appeared in 13 Horrors edited by Brian A. Hopkins.

Zembla? Limbaugh? SHammy? As the song lyrics aptly put it, don't get around much anymore -- although I am planning a visit to New Egypt, one of these days.

Mike: Yeah, Rick is right, the King of Zembla runs an interesting realm. I scored the Weird Tales today while I was out. Putting it on the reading stack. I like that word Sacerdotal.

Rick,

I will convey your extremely kind words to the King when next he grants me an audience. I'm sure he will remember them with great satisfaction as the blade descends.

Just got the copy of Locus with that shmansome cover shot. Looked over the interview. Keeerist, I'm so full of crap it oughta be a federal crime. And the photo inside -- the genre's answer to Sidney Greenstreet. All in all, very satisfactory.

Now if only young Irvine was the Peter Lorre type.
