So I'm familiar with the story of how Ender's Game got the original cover art, which was that someone just picked a spaced out picture. For some reason I was thinking it was a trio of pictures that were used for a trilogy. Are subsequent covers (So, COTM on) by the same artist or what?

Artwork for the first three Ender's books were done by British science fiction artist John Harris. Indeed, they were images that Harris had done in the early 80s for a personal work called "Mass"--a series of scence fictional images involving large structures and spaceships. I suppose that, later on, new artwork by Harris was commissioned, in order to keep the same aesthetics on subsequent covers.

Harris is a very good artist with a very personal touch, almost mystical sometimes, but his covers for the series have nothing to do with the contents of the novels.

I prefer the newer cover, which shows Ender sort of hovering and facing the reader.
