International editions

Here is the Canadian version of AN ECHO IN THE BONE. The cover is identical to the U.S. edition, but the Canadian edition has a different publisher.

The UK edition is pictured below. (And if you are wondering about the symbolism of the leaf on the cover, look at Diana's blog entry from December 2008, and scroll down in the comments until you see the one from Diana that begins, "For Those Who Don't 'Get' the Leaf" <g>)



Special note to those of you in Australia and New Zealand who may be wondering when ECHO will be published Down Under: Diana made the following comment on Compuserve recently, in response to a question from a reader in Australia who'd seen the cover picture with the leaf on it:
Yes, that's the Orion hardcover. It'll be available in Australia and New Zealand on Sept. 22nd, and sometime in January in the UK.

For those of you in the UK who are wondering why you have to wait until January to get the book in hardcover, look here for Diana's explanation, and here for details of a special offer for UK readers that will enable you to get a FREE paperback copy of the book when it's released in September.

Finally, here is the cover of the German edition, titled ECHO DER HOFFNUNG (which, I am told -- I don't speak German <g> -- means "Echo of Hope").

Barbara Schnell, Diana's German translator, is hard at work on her own version of a Final Frenzy at the moment, trying to meet the deadline for a November 27th release of the German edition.

If anybody has any further information on international editions, please post a comment here. Thanks!

UPDATE 8/16/2009 2:38 pm: I just discovered Carmen's extensive collection of international covers for Diana's previous books. Look here to see the picture gallery. Very interesting site, which I have added to my "OUTLANDER Links" list. Great job, Carmen, and thanks for putting that together!

Hi Karen,

since your blog belongs to my daily routine for a while already, it's time to post a comment :o)

So FYI, an Dutch edition will also be out in November. The title - Een Echo in de Tijd - means something like Echo through time and the cover looks like the one from the UK edition.
You are also right about the translation of the German title.
