It may hurt like hell leaning up this way, but that sure is one pretty space ship.Click for full image

You know what’s on the way back in terms of being considered manly? Pink! That’s right. So we’ll have a lot of it. And on top of that epic dose of man we’ll add more layers of manliness. A crewcut, a crossbow and most importantly a stomach wound. That’s one large slice of man-cake for your eyes.

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 4.70 out of 10)

    Gary : Lance! I told you not to take the crossbow when we go dancing!
    Lance : But you know how much i love to accessorize.
    Laurence : Shhhh, help me sit up. Lets watch those two guys dogging.

    The guy with the crossbow kinda looks like a Bond random henchman.

    Well for its time that’s not so bad. It is, however, quite remarkably homoerotic.

    Odd that the crossbow pistol is designed so that you can’t aim it.

    *He said in his most manly, lets move on and talk about hetero man stuff voice*

    Real men dont need to aim with crossbows. They point it vaguely in the direction and their overwhelming confidence in their awesomeness will guide the bolt to the target.

    SI, he does have a certain “I’m expendable” look. Apparantly Joel Rosenberg kills off well liked and main characters with a certain regularity. Which always adds a certain realism i sometimes like in fiction (but not always). I think the Twilight novels could have been improved by killing several main characters.

    Haha What couldn’t be improved by killing off a few main characters? Castaway could have been greatly improved with that very thing 😉

    It’s emoticons that have ruined this one for me. “Not For Glory BIG SMILEY FACE!”

    Thank the good lord for blurbs. Just glancing at the cover I thought that their business involved being male models for the universe’s blandest fashion designer.

    War, and their business is killing. Huh. Who’d of thunk?

    That’s amoré!

    Not for glory, but for Gucci.

    If that’s their ship, why are they just hanging around like that when they ought to be getting the bleeding one into it? If it’s not their ship, why are they so close and casual?

    And with that giant-ass moon so close, I’m a bit skeptical that this planet is tectonically stable and has Earth-normal gravity, temperature, and atmosphere.
