Re: Cover I generally hand code epubs (because I am crazy) but as you are comfortable with Calibre this method may solve your problem: Select the entry for Hunter in the central pane of Calibre From the top toolbar, select Edit Metadata->Edit Metadata individually. In the pop-up menu that opens, under Book Cover (middle pane) select Browse and go to the location of the cover image on your hard drive. You should now see your cover in the Book Image pane. Select Ok (bottom right of the popup). Now for the weird bit. To "really" have the cover as part of the exported ebook file, You have to RECONVERT the file. So, just make sure you still have the entry for Hunter selected in the central pane of Calibre, and from the top toolbar, select Convert Books->Convert Individually. You don't need to make any real changes in the pop-up menu that appears, just choose epub or mobi as Output Format in the top right-hand corner and press Ok. When you select Save To Disk, the resulting epub and mobi files should have the nice cover inside. (The exported pdf should too, but it will probably be pug-ugly).

MySpace/Dark Horse Presents Vol 1-5. Available for free on MySpace (http://mysp.ac/JPdJ) but I prefer the dead tree versions that they've also released. Talk about an eclectic mix: Doctor Horrible, BPRD, the Umbrella Academy, David Malki!'s Wondermark and a huge number of unique one-off stories from new and established talents. In summary: me likey

One of these things is not like the others, One of these things just doesn't belong, Can you tell which thing is not like the others By the time I finish my song?

I'd certainly by a DRM-Free ePub, and maybe a dead tree version. (I'm not a fan of limited editions. Does this mean my nerd membership will be revoked?)

I adored Fantastic Mr Fox! And if you haven't seen it already, this Spider-man/Wes Anderson video had me in hysterics - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5KfHEoZDKI

I have three words for you: Lois McMaster Bujold. Thanks to Baen's enlightened policies, you don't even have to take my word for it. The first 10 chapters from loads of her books are online. Any of these 3 are a great intro to her Vorkosigan Saga.
