Today in the mail I received the final hardbound edition of Ready Player One, the science fiction novel by Ernest Cline that I've been raving about for months now (it hits shelves August 16, 2011). I think the final cover (on the right) is okay. It reminds me of a Vonnegut cover. But my favorite cover is the black, red, and white advance reader's edition (middle). interestingly, the first advanced reader's edition cover, the green and white one, has a similar layout to the final version. Which do you prefer? (click image to embiggen).
