The German cover looks suspiciously like the American cover, no? Published by Rockbuch Verlag.

[click cover for hi-res image]

The UK version of Be More Chill was published by HarperCollins UK. It came with its own Flash movie, which was cool. (Unfortunately all that remains is this screenshot.)



I traveled throughout England 6/28/04-7/3/04 to promote the book and got to see the Firth of Forth, one of my favorite bridges when I was a boy, among other sights. Here are the pictures on flickr:
