Very much in keeping with the previous covers from this publisher. It looks pretty good, I have to say.
I miss Hungary. And Hungarian.
I may have to try and snag some of these…
And old E.T. whispers sweet nothings to a very young Michelle Pfeiffer…?
I like it. Oh geez, now I remember those two that followed her around. Anyone have a picture of those?
I love it John!
Very Cool. My favorite one is still the dust jacket by Vincent Chong of Subterranean Press. That’s just the way I pictured the Obin and Zoe.
That Agave press sure has some sweet covers
What do Natalie Portman and Mick Jagger have to do with your story?
Reblogged this on Barbara C Rowe Author.
@McKenna: Oh please, don’t miss Zoe’s Tale because of a bad experience with Ender. She’s a delightful character, full of snark and clever, and the book has heart-filling and heart-breaking moments. Plus she’s a teenager–no way the story her parents know (>i>The Last Colony) is complete…
Gorgeous! That’s the second cover I’ve seen in the last 10 minutes that has to go in my “Favorite Covers” gallery on LibraryThing. (The other is Tina Connolly’s new UK Ironskin cover.)
I love that SF&F publishers the world over are still willing to put the effort into making beautiful covers!
Does anyone have a link for the rest of the covers from that publisher? I tried googling “agave press” and “agave press scalzi”, but the only relevant match seemed to be this article…
Nice. I was at Tesco in Budaörs a couple weeks ago waiting for my hair cut appointment and I killed time in the little book store there. They had Ghost Brigades and Last Colony. It was all I could do to not buy them. Now this. I’ll just have to get all 3.
I didn’t pick them up because I’ve been very bad at being disciplined with my Hungarian lessons and I still can’t read my copy of Old Man’s War – which my wife reminds me about regularly. So if I showed up with the rest of the series before I’ve even read the first she would give me a lot of grief.
@ JR, just dont give up ;-) You may even go for the commercially unavailable, but still existing Kindle versions (in Hungarian I mean), and pair them with the proper dictionary (also existing). Maybe it is easier to read this way.
@steinarbang: Check this: http://moly.hu/polcok/venek-haboruja-univerzum its a community site for readers, and this is the Old Mans War “shelf”. Just click twice on the covers, consecutively.
