Not sure how I feel about the small font for the name. Kind of blends into the blurb. I do think the bloody hand print is more evocative, however the whole thing seems a bit flat. Perhaps some texture to either the background or the type?
I really like the old one
I agree with Chris, I thought the old one was good.
Hmmm, thanks all, much appreciated, food for thought. Had wondered whether the original cover was clearly enough in-genre, if you see what I mean.(Really like the cover for Hill Country, by the way. Is excellent).
