ANCESTOR UK cover for novel by Scott SiglerDear UK Junkies: ANCESTOR hits your book racks on August 18, 2010. If you haven't already pre-ordered the book from Amazon.co.uk, then mark your calendars and start spreading the word. It's got a fancy cover that's different from the US version. And no, just because the cover makes it look this way, ANCESTOR is not "slash" fiction.

I will be buying a copy...

Gotta support the FDO and it'll look cool with all the other books on my shelf.

In Germany Ancestor will be called "Implantiert"

It will be released in Nov 2010. There's already a cover available. I uploaded it to the Siglerpedia: Ancestor@Siglerpedia

why the different cover? is

why the different cover? is that normal for most books?

GO KRAKENS!

It's normal, and I have no idea

The claim is that different markets respond to different images. Hodder & Stoughton, the publishers of the UK version, feel strongly that the modified cover fits with buying trends in the UK. I have no control over it, so they just do their thing.

Hmmmm

I think the cover does look cool, but it doesnt compare to the hot hard cover, i dont understand why they dont print the hardcover and ship it to the uk. I got the hard cover shipped over and will definately buy the uk version cos if there are good sales in the uk, hopefully it'll mean more oppurtunities

Pre-Order - Done!

Scott's teasin' us with the new version on drip feed. With this on its way we'll probably get to read the end before the podcast is done.

Either way its good stuff.

Sales of books in the US

Went on a business trip and went through John Wayne (OC), Denver (DIA), Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Tulsa (TUL).   What do they have in common?  NO COPIES OF ANCESTOR IN ANY OF THE AIRPORT BOOKSTORES!  FDO, you're killing me.  This would be a good place to hit.  Junkies, your silly iPhone apps are no match for Ancestor!!

Thanks Scott. I cant normally afford the hard backs, but at £4.99 even I can afford it. Just wish I could have had it signed.

On Edited

I'm sure Scott appreciates all sales.

By buying the books we are doing our bit to ensure the FDO will keep on providing us with great free content.

Well done my friend - they all count!

Someday, my Junkie friend, someday ...

I hope to make it to the UK for a mini-European tour: England, Ireland, Scotland and several spots in Germany. As I've said, me and David Hasselhoff? Doing quite well in Germany. Hold on to those books and I hope to be able to sign them for you someday when we share a pint.

Good news Mr Sigler...

Good news indeed.

When you do come to Scotland I shall be there, with my armful of books!

And in Scotland, you shall have a whisky on me.

Tell you what - here's an incentive. When you do come I shall give you a special bottle of Scotch whisky (note the spelling of whisky, without an 'e')

Cheers

Good news...

Hang in there! You've only got a few more days until you receive a huge chunk of Siglerific goodness! Is it the Hardback or the UK paperback you're waiting on?
