Attention Portuguese Speakers

If you or someone you love speaks Portuguese and/or lives in a Portuguese speaking country, you will be pleased to know that the Portuguese language version of Old Man’s War will be available as of next Tuesday, or so I am led to understand. I believe the above is its exploderrific cover art.

More travel today. Catch you in the evening.

  1. “War is for the Old”? Good title. I think that might be the best title translation yet.

  2. A useful reminder: although this is great news to Scalzi and to Portuguese readers, this is a translation made to Portugal alone. It will not be sold in Brazil – we speak a slightly different variation here, the Brazilian Portuguese, and books from Anglo-American market are sold separately to both countries, thus always getting two different translations. I´ll still break the news to my Brazilian readers, though, hoping that make publishing houses here watchful. Congrats!!

  3. If any of your novels get published in Arabic, please let me know.

  4. That’s a pretty kickin’ cover. Love the muted color scheme. And lots o’ shit blowin’ up is cool too!

  5. Really love that cover art, even if it isn’t particularly specific to the book.

  6. Wow. Love that cover art. A different perspective, one I’ve not seen much of in miliary sci-fi art.

    Oh, um … yeah, and the book’s pretty good, too. At least the English version was.

  7. that cover is awesome! it makes me think of the battle for coral.

  8. Roughly translated, “Battle of the Old Farts.”

    I could be wrong about this.

  9. I’m not normally a “me too” sorta guy, but man that’s cool cover art. I need to start writing in Portuguese… :)

  10. I’m going to have to remember “exploderiffic.”

  11. INcredible artwork! Brings action to the cover like I’ve not seen in a long time! The two “jets” dogfighting in the background is particularly spectacular.

  12. That’s very a “attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion” sort of art. Like it, though.

  13. Congrats.
    Ey, that’s quite an illustration there… nothing like what appears on the spanish version which happens to bring shame upon those brave enough to read the book on public.

  14. hiiissss, messed up there. The unbearable one is for The last colony…. pure pink :S

  15. Oh my god, that is the best cover art space battle EVER.

    (What is WRONG with American publishing companies, that they didn’t slap THAT on your books? Why aren’t they running out to the bookstores with color copies and slapping it on your existing paperbacks with glueguns AS I TYPE THIS?)
