Orson Scott Card teams up with Star Wars artist!

Coming in October (hardcover, $35)

Academy Award-winning artist Doug Chaing and best-selling science fiction author Orson Scott Card join forces in Robota - an extraordinary illustrated adventure.

Robota follows the fortunes of our hero Caps, as he navigates an ancient, decaying world in which a dwindling human population battles a society of merciless robot warriors. Aided by sentient animals and stalked by terrifying hunter robots, Caps fights to unravel his past and to create a future for himself and his planet, slowly rising to fulfill an awesome destiny.

A riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge, Chang's vividly imagined story and meticulously rendered paintings, in conjunction with Card's masterful prose, bring to life an electric alter-universe and a battle nothing short of epic.
Information can be found at Card's website and B&N's

This should be a cool one!

Uncle Orson is branching out.

Didn't he write the plot for some forthcoming videogame?

I just heard about this today, it certainly looks interesting, and the animations at Doug Chaing's website are very cool. Isn't ILM supposed to be launching an animation division? Maybe we could have a cool adult themed Sci Fi feature from them

Anyone here read the book yet? Most of the reviews at Amazon were pretty positive.
