Thanks very much for the feedback on the previous cover. We have a new one, posted with some trepidation:

    Better than the last cover but I don’t see the connection with “verbal fireworks”. It’s also too similar to the Diplomacy cover:

    I like this one!

    Instead of a plain red background, how would you feel about a mass of text, made up of all the different taglines? It would say something like:

    WE CAN STILL PUT ON THE SHOW when I proposed a partnership this was not what I had in mind IF I’D KNOWN THE PLANK EXTENDED OVER SHARK-INFESTED WATERS Blame it on the alien FORGIVE ME WHILE I LAPSE INTO UNCONSCIOUSNESS

    Except with different colours instead of lower and upper case.

    Could I suggest maybe switching the positioning of the title and the tagline? A lot of stores that I know (including the one that I work at) have books displayed tiered standing vertically so that the top 1/2 to third is visible – with this design, I’m not sure that the title would be visible..

    Maybe it’s solely an Australian thing, though. I know there are a lot of things we think of as matter of course here that drew some strange looks elsewhere.
