Blown To Bits

Way Cool Cover on Russian Edition of Blown to Bits

Monday, January 11th, 2010 by Harry Lewis

Not sure if those RJ-45 connectors are supposed to remind us of viruses attacking a cell or spermatazoa on their way to an egg, but it’s a graphic worthy of a video game. The title seems to mean “Attack of the Bits,” except that I don’t think either word is real Russian.

    I love your book and blog and I really don’t want to ruin that awesome cover, but it looks like sperm reaching an egg.

    The title does mean “Attack of the Bits,” and both words are real Russian (of course, the pun on the word bit in the English title does not translate easily).

    Thanks, Leo. Google Translate drew a complete blank.
