Here's the cover:
Amazon.com lists this as a hardcover for a recommended price of 25.95, but they're selling it for 17.13. It also says in the book description: The first novel based on the SCI FI Channel's biggest hit series ever! Does this mean that there will be more of them, either covering the series or other, standalone novels? According to the author's webpage, the book will be released in Janruary 2006.
This is what Carver has to say about the book:
The SciFi Channel's new hit series, Battlestar Galactica, is loosely based on the original 1978 series, but very different in tone and character. If you're a fan, come relive the four-hour miniseries that kicked it off. If you've never seen the TV show, this is a great introduction to a very human cast of characters, struggling to lead humanity to survival in the face of attempted genocide. The Cylons are far more than chrome toasters now; they're all too nearly human, and they have a deadly agenda.
This was my first movie novelization. I loved the miniseries, and I had a terrific time writing this.
