Here's the cover of the German edition of The Midnight Road, retititled as the soft, warm, and fuzzy PAIN. Our German friends certainly do like their horror to be at least as hardcore as their music. In fact, the horror line itself is called HEYNE HARDCORE, and if you check the reviews of the German edition of KILLZONE (The Dead Letters) over on Amazon.de you'll see it gets pretty badly bashed by readers who find that it's not nearly gruesome enough as they've been led to believe. Well, anyway, you'll see that if you can read German or if you spend a large part of your morning cutting and pasting into the translator over at Dictionary.com.

That is a really striking cover. It would definitely catch my eye
