    “Kill the enemy with Pepto-Bismol!”

    McCann is the male hero of the story and Ballantine had a novel solution for the cover.

    Well, if the solution is to turn people in to mutant crab creatures it’s starting to work but I suspect a bullet to the head would be kinder.

    Is the title in hexadecimal? I wonder what the significance of 16 cubed is: doers the big vial contain sixteen cubic metres of fizzy pink stuff or something?

  5. NomadUK Says:

    MB@4: F is 15, not 16 (which would be 10 base 16). 15^3 is 3,375(10) or D2F, which, come to that, is perfectly appropriate to this cover.

    Don’t you hate it when you get super glue on your head and elbow?

    If Barclay Shaw posed a model for this cover she must have ended up with some severe muscle cramps.

    Daniel’s cousin (Ted) has definitely F-Cubed Texas.

    So this is what the wet dreams of chiropractors look like.

    @NomadUK: GSS!

    What is *wrong* with her arm? It’s way too skinny for the rest of her body.

    I feel like the author is leaning over my shoulder, malodorous breath in my ear, whispering “Can you guess what the F stands for? Huh? Huh?”

    The factory where L’Oreal make Stu-Stu-Studio Line.

    The odd pose is (almost) justified by one accurate foot.

    Waking with a head-splitting hangover the morning after the F-Cubed Valentine’s frat party, McCann crawled to the bathroom, relieved to find a giant bottle of Pepto. With a start, she realized she did not know where she was or why she was missing her left arm…
