Title: The Deluge
Author: Leonardo da Vinci

Best things about this cover:
  • If Leonardo had lived the 1950s and written B-movies: this.
  • She's a maniac, MAAANiac ... 
  • Steve tried valiantly to rescue all the damsels on Mount Severe Shaving Injury.
  • This is exactly how I imagined the 16th century.
  • "I get it, Lydia—your boobs are magnificent. Can't we please get off this rock now!?"
  • Please check out his left hand. Now good luck purging it from your nightmares.


Best things about this back cover:
  • I give this a C- for vagueness.

Page 123~ [This is from L's notebook, and it's quoted in a lengthy editor's note.]

And the surface of the earth having become at last a burnt cinder, all earthly nature shall cease.

The 'editor' was actually a poet and professor of English literature who had written a number of biographies, including one of Hitler in which he'd claimed Hitler had spent time in Liverpool.
