        Well, the mail has arrived and contained many more packages than expected!

        First up, The Beast House by Richard Laymon. The seller originally sent me The Cellar, but I returned it to him.

        So now I've got #2 and #3 of the Beast House Chronicles. Now I just have to get a copy of the cellar, couldn't afford it at the time.

          Well, the seller was so happy that I sent back The Cellerhe , he offered to put a gift in with the package with TBH. He gave me a list of books he had just gotten from an estate sale and I chose the 1st print trade HC of Carrion Comfort by Simmons. Great! I openned the package and this is what he sent me (not even on the list).

          Now I'm not complaining. I didn't pay for the book anyway and it is has a bunch of cthulhu stories I don't have. Of course, "Crouch End" by King was included in Nightmare & Dreamscapes. But why send me a list and let me choose?

          Oh well.....

            Decided to try an edition from THe Book Depository to see if I like them. The price was right, so I ordered a signed copy of Railsea by China Mieville.

            The slipcase is not really that well-constructed, but I'm happy with it. Don't know if I'll order anything else from them, but..

              Finally, the one I HAD been waiting for today. Again, the first thing I had ever ordered from Overlook, just to check out their production values. I'm sold on Overlook, I'll be giving their site the ocassional once over now.

              The title page explains that this is the 4th edition of the book and it is revised and expanded. It is 400 pages long. CD's edition (I don't know which number it is) is 467 pages long. I don't own any of the other editions and I'm wondering what may have been left out of ealier editions. Oh well. I'm having fun looking through it.

                  You know about a year ago I could have told you what I had to add in to our revised ebook edition that wasn't in the original, but I can't remember now. I'll try and remember to look up the TOC for you later. There was also stuff removed from the new version that was in the original as King published some of the things that where "Unpublished".

                      Good to know Dan, I never thought about that (that some stuff had been published since)! Thanks. Was the edition that CD published the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd edition?

                        I think it was the first, with our eBook version being the 3rd edition. I'm not sure what the 2nd edition was though.

                          Thanks, BW. I just never know how a press assigns limitation numbers to a customer. I know that some ask for certain numbers, so Does that mean I was an early preorder of the book or do they just do it alphabeticly after all requested numbers are given out. Not that it matters.

                            We don't really have a specific method to it. I think everyone does it differently though. If it's something that doesn't have a lot of requested numbers, we'll do all the requested numbers first, then just number a large quantity of books and just grab off the piles to fill the orders. In most instances, unless you request a number there is no record of what number we sent you. I typically work from the highest number to the lowest number.
