    Correct. It states that it will not include the 'The Secret of Roanoke' dust jacket.

    That's a good idea. Start telling her I"m getting of my new book recommendations from her mother.

    I guess I didn't get the brown envelope variant. Here's how mine were packaged:

    My signed copy was packed in three boxes and a cardboard envelope, probably the best-protected book I've ever received.
    My signed coy was packaged just like the unsigned and then the padded envelope was inside another shipping box. Kind of felt like Russian nested dolls.

The signed edition was packed very nicely.)

    I posted some pictures of it on my IG and my wife was really concerned about my reading habit since I featured the alternate cover.

    Congrats to everyone who got one.

    Congrats. My unsigned copy did show up today and the brown envelope was ripped apart as well. However the book was safe in it's cardboard and shrink wrap.

    By the way what is IG? I don't get the reference.

    Congrats! Missed out on the signed edition but my unsigned copy is scheduled for today. Since it stated "out for delivery" it will could be anytime from today to Monday! LOL

    So I left at 2 yesterday and FedEx showed up at 2:30 so delivery was delayed. They just arrived. The driver had a mask. Of course it was protecting his neck rather than his face. He handled the signature just like the UPS guy with one exception. The UPC guy stood back, with a mask on, asked for my last name and set the package down. The FedEX guy stood at the door with the mask around his neck, asked my last name, and handed me the package. So FedEx has it set up so they do not need to be at the door to have me sign anything but they still stand right at the door. But at the end of things I have my 22nd King signature and I have number 214. I also had not realized that the limitation was much smaller than Joyland. My Joyland is 484 of 724 while Later is 214 of 374.

    Both the Amazing Universe and Forbidden Planet orders shipped from the same address.

    It happens to rain here a lot. For that reason I think the drivers are pretty tuned in to that. I have a covered porch and packages are almost always left there. Amazon is also pretty good at leaving smaller packages hidden behind some potted plants so you have to look to see them. Occasionally a package is left on a bench that is exposed but never when it is raining. That said, I am sure I have a lot less package traffic at my house then CD does.
