Sam Weber’s Ender’s Game ebook cover

I am very excited to release Sam Weber’s ebook cover for Ender’s Game. This was a blast to work on.

For the whole skinny on the how the cover came about, Sam’s thoughts, and a some process pictures, check out the Tor.com article.

Wow, Sam Weber's work is just plain stunning. Giving maturity to the eyes of a ten year old is an amazing feat.

Very cool cover, I actually just read this for the first time about a week ago. Way better art than on the rendition I read, my only CC' would be the energy/light on the palm. I collect comics and anytime I see something like that I can't help but think about Ironman, had it been on all the fingertips that might have been a nice difference.

Overall great design and illustration, Ender looks perfect.

Is this only for the eBook? I loved Ender's Game, but gave my copy to a friend years ago. I've been wanting to replace it, and I would love to get a (paper) book with this cover. Call me old fashioned, but I like paperback....

This is the best visual depiction of one of my favorite sci-fi characters ever. Thank you Sam, it;s been too long since Wiggin was depicted so well!

incredible cover for a incredible book.

and the art on the copy I have is really poor, I'd really love to have this one on an actual book also.

I think this is the first time this book gets a worthy cover.Well done!

I like this a lot, mostly because I've already been drawn to the series because I've heard such good things about it. Sam Weber's rendition of a new cover makes me want to read it even more now.
