Hominids sixth printing

Woohoo! Just received copies of the 6th printing of the mass-market paperback of Hominids from Tor. Book got legs!

And, in at least some acknowledgment of the fact that the US and Canadian dollars are now worth about the same, Tor has changed the cover price from US$7.99/Cdn$10.99 to US$7.99/Cdn$9.99.

I'm glad to see Hominids still going strong. Besides winning the Best Novel Hugo Award, the book's other honors include:

  • John W. Campbell Memorial Award Finalist
  • Aurora Award Finalist
  • Seiun Award Finalis
  • Gaylactic Spectrum Award Finalist
  • Three Months on the Locus Hardcover Bestsellers List (prior to winning the Hugo)
  • Year's Best List: San Francisco Chronicle
  • Year's Best List: Borders Books

That is still a 25% markup from US$ to CAD$, which still sucks! I know isn't your fault and am not blaming you, but it is pretty obnoxious.

And don't forget that it was the "One Book, One Community" selection here in Kitchener-Waterloo a few years ago.
