Book Triptych

Just arrived at the Scalzi Compound:

From the left: The Portuguese edition of Old Man’s War, the physical copy of The God Engines, and the Tor trade paperback edition of Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded. The first of these is out already; the latter two are imminent — TGE is shipping by the end of the year, and Hate Mail is scheduled for January 5th (which means a few might have already leaked to stores). They all look great. I love the new Hate Mail cover (not that I didn’t like the one with me as a devil on it, it’s just that this one is probably better for a mass market), and The God Engines is simply the coolest-looking book I’ve had so far, thanks to Vincent Chong’s awesome cover and interior art (some of which you can see on the SubPress order page for the book). Really, it’s like Christmas came early around here. By, uh, three days or something.

As a TGE addendum, it’s gotten another positive review, this time by the Sacramento Book Review:

Scalzi somehow manages in a mere 136 pages to create believable, like-able characters who exist in a world that, while fantastic…is both wonderful and convincing.

Short but potent. I’ll take that.

OK, so I forget why I’ve been following your blog for over a year now, but it strikes me that I’ve never read a single Scalzi book. I’ll have to go correct that now, what with all these Barnes and Noble coupons burning holes in my email.

So feel free to add “1” to what I have no doubt is an intricately formulated blog ROI algorithm.

Happy holidays!

Just to clarify, yes I see that you’ve called it “the Portuguese edition,” but I wasn’t sure if that referred to the language or the country…I’ve some relatives in Brazil who might enjoy Old Man’s War if that is indeed where this comes from.

Sweet, can’t wait to get my hands on TGE. I adore well-written novellas. Few and far between these days. Hmm, you know what. I’m going to order The God Engines and Panverse 1 in the next few weeks. Kick back and compare the six novellas. What do you think of that, Whateverellas?

I’m reading that (very good by the way) portuguese translation of Old Man’s War and I’m loving it. Can’t wait for the next ones!

A big hello form Portugal!
