Check out the goods - the final INFECTED hardcover just came in. The orange INFECTED is all raised and glossy, totally fly. Yes, I said "fly," understand my 80s upbringing and love me for me. This cover was designed by Kyle "The Krusher" Kolker over at Crown Publishing, with guidance by my kick-ass editor Julian "The Shiv" Pavia.

Does this make it more "real," as one Junkie said? A little, but not that much -- all of my attention is focused on April 1. I'm doing everything possible (and adding some impossible) to make this be-yotch soar on that day. As Conan once said, what is most important in life is: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."

The "enemy" is big publishing (Crown excluded, of course!) Their "woman" is the Gray Lady, the New York Times Bestseller list.

Bring it on, April 1, bring it on ...

WOW

Holy JUNK that looks sweet!

Having worked in a library for a long time, and seeing the books come and go, I've never agreed with the old adage that "You can't judge a book by its cover", and this book proves me right again: AWESOME COVER = AWESOME BOOK! That cover is definitely going to snag huge attention on the shelves!

I second that!

I'd love to see the inside and back!

Looking good

From earlier descriptions I thought it might not have a dust jacket but rather have the printing right on the cover...this is beautiful! 

 

Top notch design and execution --no pun intended on the 'execution' part >:)

Makes me anxious to get my hands on it.

Paraphanalia behind your book?!

What do you have sitting on the table behind the book, eh? Now we all know where your "inspiration" comes from: your happy, blue, blown glass bong! Forget the pub crawls, see if Crown will send you to Amsterdam. ;)

 

Congrats on the book, it looks great!

On Edited

That is a beautiful thing....

 I'm itchin' just to get my hands on it....  And don't worry.... I'll get a copy or two on the 1st... in addition to the one I already pre-ordered....  It'll happen... us OJ's are "strong like bull"

Bong?

Surely our esteemed Dark Overlord wouldn't be doing anything illegal. I know he has way too much respect for the laws of our government for that.

Forget Amsterdam! Party at my pad!!!

It's a damn flower vase!

Listen all you THC-addled Junkies, it's a flower vase. When I crush the world under my heel and kill millions, it will be a drug-free takeover.
On Edited

The only way that will happen,

Is if you declare alcohol to no be a drug....  otherwise, it'll be much much tougher...

The cover looks SWEET!

I was going to pre-order on Amazon, but after seeing a picture of it, I think I will swing by my local bookstore just so I can see it in person!

On a side note, after looking at the flower vase and table cloth in the background, I realized that you must've taken this pic at your grandmothers house. It sure is nice of you to bring her your first copy.

I dont know

 Sure looks like a bong to me
