Boing Boing favorite Brian Ewing (Ghosbusters in a Rat Fink car, Anatomical Frankenstein) has a line of Valentine's cards with scratch-off secret messages:
I collaborated with animator CRANKBUNNY to create a nerdy and awesome Valentine scratch-off card.
The card reveals one (of four) secret messages* underneath a heart within a skeletal chest cavity. It can be used for more than just a traditional Valentine's card. Use the card to break up with someone. Quit your job. Or just to pay your rent late. Great for someone you love or hate any time of the year. Soften the blow or sweeten the deal...and be awesome while doing it!
*1. Your Coffin Or Mine
*2. Your Heart Belongs To Me
*3. My Body's A Zombie For You
*4. I've Got A Heart On For You
VALENTINES!!! IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR...SO TRY TO BE RAD FOR ONCE!

The Unexpected Dimension is a 1960 paperback anthology of science fiction short stories by Algis Budrys. It only merits 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads, and even this 5-star review on Amazon gives me pause: “Budrys is a difficult writer. It usually takes several readings before you can really understand what is going on […]
