The cover for Vernor Vinge’s The Children of the Sky has just been released, and we think it’s gorgeous. It also happens to be the sequel to Vinge’s Hugo Award-winning, A Fire Upon the Deep. So while you’re all taking a gander at this lovely new cover, we have a massive giveaway for all of you who want to be ready for its release. We are giving away 50 copies (that’s right, we said 50) of A Fire Upon the Deep. That’s 50 chances for you to win, so enter now!

The Official Rules: To enter, post a comment in this post. Duplicate comments won’t be counted. Fifty winners will be randomly selected by noon EST on Tuesday, March 22nd. Please check your email in the 24 hours after the giveaway has concluded; if we don’t hear back from a winner within 24 hours of being contacted, another winner will be chosen.

I haven't read the first book yet but the cover for the sequel intrigues me. Also, in the words of the ODB: It's free books! how could you not take it?

Hmm, according to my Delicious Library, I only have Deepness, not aFUtD, which is odd as I've definitely read Fire, but not Deepness (yet). Perhaps it never moved to HK with me.

It was a long time ago, though, so it's certainly time for a re-read.

I sure hope you guys ship to overseas...

This story, of all of Vinge's, changed my view of SF. What it could be, what it could convey and how deeply it could affect.

Waiting for Vernor Vinge's next novel is the most interminable
part of my reading life.

Whether or not I get a copy of 'A Fire Upon the Deep' I am so excited.

That cover looks awesome! Loved "Fire" and "Deepness" (& everything else Vinge has written), excited for TCotS since seeing this screenshot (How many authors use Linux like that to write their novels? So cool). Is it October yet?

I love books! Especially Sci Fi books. Though I have not read this book before it seems like it could be a very exciting read.

Cool - maybe I can pass this one around too and get a few more people into one of the best SF books ever written.!
Alas - my last one never came back as some point.

Loved both the previous books in the series. But lost my copy of the first! So I would love it in order to re-read them before The Children of the Sky comes out and wins Vernor Vinge his next hugo.
