Centipede Press will publish a signed, special limited edition version of ‘Ender’s Game’ in October.
According to Centipede’s website, this edition will include two color-illustrated books. The first book will be the 1990s revised version of ‘Ender’s Game’. The second book will contain Card’s original typed manuscript of the ‘Ender’s Game’ novella from 1975. This novella was later published for the first time in the August 1977 issue of Analog. The original typed manuscript likely contains minor differences from the published version which first appeared in the August 1977 issue of Analog.
“This stunning new edition of Ender’s Game is enclosed in a capped cloth slipcase, full color artwork by David Ho, a new introduction by Brandon Mull, Card’s introduction from 1991, an afterword by Orson Scott Card, and a separate book of the author’s original typed manuscript from 1975 which was submitted to Analog magazine. The book sizes are 6½ × 10 inches. Both books are printed in two and four colors throughout and are cloth bound. . . . Each copy is signed by Orson Scott Card, Brandon Mull, and David Ho.”
Examples of this edition’s artwork can be seen above (Chapter 1) or below (Chapter 6). Visit Centipede Press for a couple more artwork previews.
