About that Palestinian state including East Jerusalem...

As we contemplate the current Palestinian establishment, controlled by Hamas, demanding a Palestinian state including East Jerusalem in its territory, I suggest remembering the Palestinians in East Jerusalem celebrating the September 11 attacks.

(BTW, it was no hoax, nor video from some other occasion -- see this rebuttal of such claims.)

Sorry, folks. You've had your fun. No statehood celebration in East Jerusalem for you. F*ck you very much.

More cover tweaks...

Well, I've darkened the planet, enlarged the artwork, and tried two different ways to add stars. Plus made the text purple just in case that's better. I've been looking for the right clip art of a comet or of the Milky Way to add as well, but no luck so far.

Need comments on possible book cover!

I hope I've succeeded in sending some people here from Goodreads. I would greatly appreciate some comments on whether either of the book covers shown above for my SF novel is a suitable cover for actual publication, or whether it's one or more of the following:

--artwork not sufficiently professional

--layout not sufficiently professional

--the wrong font for the text

--the wrong color for the text

--other text problems

--too much unused space

--too "creepy"

The version with the smaller planet is what I'd thought of using for the e-book, as the other is hard to read in thumbnail size.

Thanks for your input!
