Children of the Sky - Coming soon

Tor has released some more info, including the cover, of the forthcoming Children of the Sky by Vernor Vinge.  I loved A Fire Upon the Deep, so I can hardly wait for October to get here so I can get my hands on this one.
The Blurb

At last, the direct sequel to the Hugo Award–winning bestseller A Fire Upon the Deep!

Ten years have passed on Tines World, where Ravna Bergnsdot and a number of human children ended up after a disaster that nearly obliterated humankind throughout the galaxy. Ravna and the pack animals for which the planet is named have survived a war, and Ravna has saved more than one hundred children who were in cold-sleep aboard the vessel that brought them.

While there is peace among the Tines, there are those among them — and among the humans — who seek power… and no matter the cost, these malcontents are determined to overturn the fledgling civilization that has taken root since the humans landed.
It will be interesting to see how he expands on the world of the Tines and the human survivors stranded there.
