Spotted Listing on Amazon
On Amazon’s UK site, we spotted this entry for an Ender’s Game “film tie-in edition”. There is no book cover uploaded yet, but the release date is listed as January 3, 2013. This paperback printed by Orbit is listed as having 352 pages, with a pre-order price of £7.99 or roughly $10.50.
From the back of the book:
“Now a major motion picture starring Harrison Ford ‘An increasingly popular and relevant novel that risks and achieves and delivers more than most anything else within the science fiction genre, Ender’s Game is a contemporary classic’ New York Times ‘Card has taken the venerable SF concepts of a superman and interstellar war […] and, with superb characterization, pacing, and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power’ Booklist ‘A gripping tale of adventure in space and a scathing indictment of the military mind’ Library Journal ‘Some of the most hauntingly brilliant writing of the decade’ Interzone Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards”
Note that this version would likely not be similar to The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion. The entry is more similar to this listing (scroll down to product details) for a regular print of the book with an updated cover featuring images associated with the movie. We can’t say we’re surprised, books adapted into films almost always release movie covers close to the release of the movie.
