A Follow-Up

This is just a quick follow-up to the post which first looked at Mark Sarvas' Harry, Revised. I'm in the midst of reading this now, and it's really good: the hero is surprisingly engaging, given that he's a moral coward, pole-axed by grief, a user of prostitutes, unfaithful to his wife, off in his own world and motivated mostly by selfishness. The cover featured in that post is even more well-done than I first thought, as that very Penguin edition of The Count of Monte Cristo actually features in the plot in one very funny scene.

So, given how perfect that cover design, by gray318, was, what did the Australian publishers of Harry, Revised decide to use on their edition?

A boring picture of a shirt.
