* On the [=HarperCollins=] cover of DaleBrown's ''Warrior Class'' there is an image of a B-1B Lancer (lookalike), but (at least on my copy) the tail control surfaces appear translucent. At first I wrote it off as a printing problem. However, later on in the book it is stated that Dreamland's modified Bones, the EB-1C Vampires, lack a horizontal stabiliser and have a much shorter vertical stabiliser because of the special technology they use to make the skin of the Vampire able to change and affect its flight characteristics without needing conventional flight control surfaces. Then it clicked into place that the translucency wasn't accidental![[labelnote:*]]I hope...[[/labelnote]] -- GentlemensDame883
