Mad Hatter's Bookshelf & Book Review routinely receives books from Publishers and Authors for review consideration. When in doubt assume the book comes from a Publisher or if you follow my New Procurement posts I usually describe the source of said book. I still buy a lot of books as well.
There was quite some heated debate over Orbit US diverting from the look of the First Law Trilogy so much for Best Served Cold. Now Orbit has gone back to the well for a entirely new look for the mass market edition. It is very simple but effective. The British sensibility is definitely in effect. I'm not sure if This will be the US and UK mass market look though. However, the design does greatly remind me of Warren Ellis's very strange Crooked Little Vein in many ways.
