Hmm - I guess I didn't think of how it might aid someone in your type of situation. I would assume that most libraries/bookstores would have an idea as to what came in, and once it was shelved, the nature would be apparent to a patron.

I understand what you say about ""at a glance", as I was thinking that pretty much any novel has - at the very least - the "This is a work of fiction..." disclaimer.

I've read in the past about the thought and effort that went into designing covers - it sorta surprised me to see this sort of text appearing so prominently.
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
