Tor sent me a few samples of the cover of the upcoming mass-market paperback version of Old Man’s War, which I share with you now, in all its foil-stamped and embossed glory. And not just foil-stamped and embossed in one color, but two — silver and gold. Truly, I am living the science fiction author dream. Indeed, I think it entirely possible that, however OMW fares at the Hugos this year (have you voted? Have you? Huh?), it’ll be a true contender for the 2007 Gold Leaf Award for Best Foil Stamped/Embossed Book Cover/Jacket, handed out — of course — by the Foil Stamping and Embossing Association. It’s not too much to hope for.
Seriously, though. It looks really good.
