Tor reveals cover of next Vernor Vinge book, gives away A Fire Upon the Deep

children-of-the-sky-cover-thumbTor.com has posted an image of the cover of Vernor Vinge’s forthcoming sequel to A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky. The cover to The Children of the Sky (due for publication in October) looks great, even if their link to the full-sized version has a typo. They are also giving away 50 copies of the first book in a random drawing among all people who leave comments to the contest post. (There are just over 170 so far, and probably won’t be more than a few hundred all in all, so chances are pretty good.)

A Fire Upon the Deep was the first commercial e-book I ever bought, and I reviewed the annotated e-book edition for Slashdot a few years ago. (I think I probably included a few too many spoilers about the first half or so of the book, and might do it a little differently today, but it’s not bad.) I also touched upon it in my review of another Vinge book, Rainbows End. I’m quite excited that the true sequel I’ve been wanting for over a decade is almost here at last.


Sadly, the e-book of Fire is no longer available from eReader or Fictionwise, where I originally bought it. It can be had from Amazon for .99, but not the in annotated version (which I suppose can now be considered lost again). I expect that The Children of the Sky will be available as a Kindle and Nook e-book at the usual agency prices.
