Many strange stories are told about the selection of covers for O'Reilly
books. One maintains that Tim regularly flies to a lonely planet somewhere in
a far away nebula where, on a rainy seashore, a hut stands with an old man
with unsatiable curiosity. Oh no, that's another story.
Pictures are usually selected according to right-brain associations. So it
would almost certainly not be a mouse. By the way, it's maybe a bit too soon
to start discussing cover artwork ;-)

Compared with what's going on in the world nowadays, I find Discworld an
entirely normal, sensible and reasonable place...
