NEWS: Cover Update for The Mad Scientist’s Guide’s Digital Edition

Alas, turns out we’ve had an error in the digital cover of The Mad Scientist’s Guide for quite a while now, and as a result most if not all of the versions of the cover online are duplicating that error. What happened was, the initial “final draft” of the cover turned out to have the word megalomaniacal spelled incorrectly. We caught the error, and it was fixed in production, so the print edition of the book does have the correct spelling. However, somewhere along the line, the covers got mixed up again, and as a result the online covers, including the one I was provided to use for promotion here on the anthology website and elsewhere, ended up with the version with the typo. Unfortunately this was not actually one of our mad schemes to destroy the spelling world and remake it in our own misspelled image.

The good news is, the image is fixed now, and you can find the updated cover below. The bad news is, it’s really hard to correct all those wrong covers out there online. So please, if you’re going to post about the book, or if you have already, if you wouldn’t mind using the version below, that would be much appreciated!

The fix for the ebook edition–which unfortunately did have the wrong version attached as the cover–is still forthcoming, but I’m hoping Tor will be able to get that fixed and updated on all the various ebookstores today.

The corrected cover is below. Or if you like, here’s a hi-res version.

NEWS: Behind the Scenes of the Mad Scientist’s Guide Audiobook

Mary Robinette Kowal, who contributed a story to the anthology, is also a professional voice actor. In that latter role, she helped bring the audiobook edition of the anthology to life by narrating several of the stories. In a recent post on her blog, she wrote a bit about the experience, and even showed off a page of her marked up manuscript so you can get a bit of a feel for who professional voice actors work.
