just noticed Claw of the Conciliator translated into French as "La Griffe du demi-dieu"...at first glance, seems an intrusive choice by the translator. Why 'demi-dieu' over 'conciliateur'?  I suppose the former may have the merit of invoking demi-gods like Hercules, but I think it skirts the idea of a redemptive intermediary that conciliator bears with it.

Not sure if you guys saw this or if it has made the rounds already, but here are some great (and not so great) foreign covers for TBONS:


The Italian The Claw of the Conciliator is beautiful, imo.
