I have the last cover release, Scorpion and Cormac junior. I think I prefer this one.

The French have been good with these. The scorpion drone is a little on the large side, however -- but I still like it.

So the title doesn't exactly translate?

Tops!
I've only _just_ finished reading this too. Thanks Neal :_)

apart from his gun (modern-day assault rifle?) that cover is just sublime!

I'm with Graeme number 1 - prefer this to the others (although the one showing Cormac Jr is still lovely).
I think the more video game/manga(ish) style of this one appeals to me personally.
Speaking of which - surely it's been mentioned before, but a manga style series of films of the Cormac series would absolutely kick arse - I think it's probably the only medium that could truly depict the polity universe.

I agree with Graeme. A proper adult orientation animation series would do that there Polity the world of good.

I'm the french illustrator of this cover, and I have to say I love your books.
I'm glad that you like the cover. As a humble fan it's a big deal to me.(sorry for the scorpion size!)

Nice! I like it!

Really good, better than the UK version by a wide margin.

Neal, let me just start by saying, I read this one in a DAY! I do not know if you write so that Cormac is identifiable with every man, or just me. Bravo bravo bravo. Thank you for this book.
