Mystery Science Blog 2000

Blog-1-The_FeministsSnagged this idea from Robert R. Mackey, who points out that book covers like this spark so much hilarious commentary among the spec fic authors of our circle that they deserved to be immortalized by Joel and the Robots.

(I get to be Tom Servo.)

Favorite comments on this cover are many, and cannot be re-printed here without the author’s permission My own final word on the subject of this novel, and many others like it, is this:

All such books are satire. The problem is that the authors don’t know it.

Join in, folks. That’s what the comment section is for.

    Well, you have to admit that Parley J. Cooper was pretty prescient in that 1992 was the year when the feminazis seized power in America. I remember well how the bonfires of porn and sports magazines lit the night like the fires of perdition. Then came the mass incarcerations of married men, the enforced lesbianism, the denouncements, the geldings, gangs of gay collaborators roving the streets for breeders to curb-stomp. I myself only survived intact by joining a drag queen review under the stage name Eva Destruction. Those were hard times indeed.

      It was inevitable. The reparations exacted by treaty after the Disco Wars devastated the economy. A new rise of fascism was unavoidable.

      Those who do not study history…probably spend a lot of time reading books like this, to be honest.

    As I noted before, this book is horridly inaccurate from the view of this combat veteran. The lack of fire discipline noted on the cover. Simply atrocious. It must be the Man Rage.

  3. This is bullshit. 1992 and no one is wearing flannel.

    From what I’ve read, it’s basically “The Turner Diaries” but for gender instead of race. (The resistance is co-ed, which I guess helps.) Either that, or Valerie Solanas’ SCUM Manifesto filtered through Poe’s Law.

    Greg Cox says: “1992, you say . . . .

    Reminds me of a ms. I rejected once which was basically PLANET OF THE APES with lesbians ruling the world instead of gorillas, and the last straight man on Earth trying to set things right!”

    😛

    Reverend Mama. This is a book crying for an update.
    Picture this: Midwestern evangelical conservative, married to a closeted gay man, runs for Congress and is elected. After being driven out of office by other closeted gay men (note the theme…), she starts her own religion…as Reverend Mama. The climax of the work is where she falls for a two-fisted pulp fiction writer named Farley K. Looper on a hot Nawlins night. Damn. It writes itself!
