Prattle On, Boyo: Intellectual property jackass reviews Roger Zelazny’s 1963 novelette "A Rose for Ecclesiastes"

Tech activist & digital provocateur Peyton Farquhar recently posted an interesting review of one of the most respected works of Martian science fiction & fantasy: “A Rose for Ecclesiastes” by Roger Zelazny. Published in the November 1963 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Zelazny's novelette revolves around a poetic Earthman stationed on the Red Planet, who falls in love with a Martian woman after being invited into an ancient temple to study their sacred texts.

Equally interesting is this piece at the foot of Farquhar’s review:

Considering that he has used the colorful Hannes Bok wrap-around art depicting a scene from “A Rose for Eccleasiastes” (pictured above) without “express and written permission,” Peyton Farquhar has earned the distinction of “Intellectual Property Jackass.” Prattle On, Boyo!
