Cover of the Day
This is one of my favorite covers for 'A Scanner Darkly.' I'd like to think the filmmakers remembered it (perhaps subconsciously) and were referencing it during the scene in which Freck's sins are read to him by this many-eyed creature from beyond the grave:
Update: Reader jojo points out that the creature with many eyes is described in the book:
"The creature had many eyes, all over it, ultra-modern expensive-looking clothing, and rose up eight feet high. Also, it carried an enormous scroll."
I remembered this detail on my way to work this morning. Thanks for keeping me on my toes jojo...
