So Autumn2May has set the new writing challenge already for February, write a story about what happens when a giant penis lassoes the Earth with a rainbow:   

And please give it your best shot as this is a genuine fear that keeps many of us up till late at night worrying about it




Though clearly the two giant pieces of chalk that are orchestrating the whole thing is a stretch of the imagination too far!

Has the guy gone forward in time or the aeroplane gone back in time?

That's not so much a terrible cover as an appalling title/anthology concept. Fantasy erotica with added gambling???

Re "The Far Arena", I'm guessing aeroplane, judging by the quote on the cover. Premise appears to be "protagonist escapes time-warped plane crash only to be attacked by naked gladiators" *boggles*

Did someone say naked gladiators?

*fetches baby oil*
My tongue has been in my cheek for so long, I've eroded a new mouth.

I'm fairly certain Gladiators generally were naked.  Contrary to Hollywood, Ancient Romans and Greeks did most sports including fighting in the buff.  I think they might be given some armor though, but not much.

Mind you, I'm very glad that "gymnasium" no longer has its literal meaning! All those fat sweaty bodies *barfs*

These are classic! Shame they don't make covers like they used to anymore.

Oh I don't know, if they went to the gymnasium a lot, they wouldn't be fat :D And there's nowt wrong with a bit of fresh sweat.

Brb, need a little lie down before my brain overheats.
