Did you hear? Dante’s Inferno is getting a book, too. Wait…

With EA’s Dante’s Inferno coming out, Random House has teamed up with the publisher to release a book to help capitalize on it’s impending release. On one hand, I like the fact that the Divine Comedy is getting quite a bit of attention.

On the other, the book cover below is a little too edgy? I wonder how gamers will react when they realize that the book is the actual Longfellow translation of the Divine Comedy instead of a novelization of the game? Even though it says so on the cover, I still think there might be a few surprised souls out there that mistake it for an action packed yarn instead.
