Thanks. I'd heard of Steel Beach, but never read much about it. Sounds interesting. I picked it up.

Isn't it weird that Steel Beach's cover is a very bad scan of the paperback? What's up with that? It looks terrible. Even on Penguin's own site this is the official cover.

And Steel Beach sounds like an '80's synth-pop band. I'd probably enjoy their music

That's a new low even by modern-day crappy book cover standards.

It is indeed. Especially when even a quick google search turns up a much better version of (very nearly) the same cover!

Yeah, I wound up using that as the cover. Though the author's name will be unreadable on my reader. Still, better than what the publisher offered up.
