I've just got this spiffy piece of cover art for the Night Shade reissue of Hardwired, which should be available within a few weeks or so.

Looks great! Still not quite what I envision a Panzer to look like, but very slick and clean. I like the emphasis on Cowboy.

Wow. It's really great, but do you worry it minimizez the feminine side of the book?

I remember buying the iteration with the cover art channeling Scandal's "I am the Warrior" video.

One of my favorite all time reads.

Meh...I think that Royo's cover was better, although I still snicker when I see how literally he interpreted "a face like a succession of arrowheads".

Royo actually did =two= covers for Hardwired, the original Tor release and the Spanish translation.

On the cover of the Spanish book, a lush blonde (clearly the gold-haired, dark-browed model that Royo used on a lot of his works), dressed in the wispy remains of a negligee, is fording a river while carrying a complex, LED-rich automatic weapon. Near misses are splashing all around her.

It was, umm, eye-catching. Definitely. Yes.
