Updated Redshirts Cover
Which is being added to the ebook versions as we speak, and will be on the print versions with the next edition:
Can’t complain about that. Also, “Hugo Award Winning Author” or some variation of it is likely to be added to the covers of the other books as they go to reprint.
Those of you aware of my history may ask, as the Redshirts win was actually my third Hugo, why we haven’t mentioned Hugos on book covers before. The short answer is that the other Hugos, while awesome, were in non-fiction categories, and neither I nor Patrick, my editor, felt it would have been appropriate to use them as cover page marketing for my fiction work (we did note the Hugo for Hate Mail in the bio material, which is usually inside copy).
This is not to cast aspersion on anyone else who does or would, mind you; with so many things, this is a personal judgment call. Now that I have a Hugo for fiction, it’s full speed ahead. Can’t wait to see this cover on a printed copy.
