I find the notion of a novel about a robot Stalin to be beneath contempt. Who could take such a book seriously?
Exactly! Especially when it is written by an Englishman who has no concept of the Russian soul!
I really dig the sickle-fingers.Oliver
It's a nice, subtle touch. Hardly knew at first it dealt with Stalin.
I am now going to go out and buy this book. Will probably also buy a few extra copies to give to friends. Thanks for bringing it to attention.
t's been awhile since I've read this [looking at my list,http://drjbooklist.blogspot.com, I realize it's been over 11], but I do seem to remember that this story had very little or nothing to do with Stalin at all? I figured this was a throw away fan cover, kind of like those scantily clad women clutched in the arms of huge aliens.Maybe I should go reread the Bastable trilogy so I can comment intelligently on this post, neh?Ha! :-D
