Is the last gothic cover for The Woman in White? awesome, whatever it is. You piqued my interest in the Bond covers. While it's true that the new UK covers are indeed awesome (and this from a gal who likes male rock star arms rather than Bond girl backs) still, from a marketing perspective, who is going to buy a James Bond book nowadays? Someone with a taste for vintage methinks. And thus the US version (reminds me of the Black Lizard Jim Thompson novels.)

Beth, I totally agree and yet, it's the candy-bar-at-3-a.m. people like you and me who ultimately doomed poor Kozmo. Guess I should have ordered more big-ticket items...

Wow. Flashback to Kozmo.com. What joy those orange-jacketed, scooter-driving young men and women gave us. Sigh. I miss candy bars at 3am.
