Dark Side of the Sun

Does anyone else have this cover on their copy of Dark Side of the Sun?

I think it's really quite good, but very Sci-Fi - if you know what I mean. :D

I found it within the last five years or so, but can't remember exactly. I was lucky to spot it as the Kirby covers to to be very obvious when scanning the shelves, but this doesn't look like a typical Pratchett.

I must get around to reading it again soon. :D

I've just read it and I have to say I wasn't that impressed. If there was any humour in it, I obviously didn't get it. The story itsself wasn't bad though.
