Yep! I absolutely love the german covers. I actually made myself a bunch in photoshop, this is just the one I ended up liking the best.

This is a good link to sort through some of them.

Re: TF: Revelation and Dust by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Does anybody where Ops (I think now called "the Hub") and the Plaza are on the new station? Does the "outdoors" section have a name?

I believe that the Hub is at the top of the station, where the rings come together.

The Plaza is, I think, in the central core area.

The "outdoors" section is called Nanietta Bacco Park.

And boom, you've just told 2/3 of the story of this book in 3 sentences.

If that was your takeaway from the book, you were not paying attention.

Obviously we've been over this before, but I think you're inflating this particular book beyond its merits.

I think he's right actually, there's more to this book then that.

Of course there is. But the rest of it could probably be summed up in another three sentences if you tried hard enough.

Re: TF: Revelation and Dust by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I'm loving the various storylines set up in the novel; The Poisoned Chalice seems to be "part two" (of a sort) to Revelation and Dust, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how the other three tie in. Odo has a subplot in RaD that seems it will be picked up in another of the novels.

Any work of literature can be summed up in a few sentences if you "tried hard enough." This fact is utterly irrelevant to any given work's actual literary merits.

True enough, but when this literary work's merits hardly surpass such a summation, it does not speak well of it.

Fortunately, such a scenario does not apply to the superb character study that is Revelation and Dust.
