    Noticed that "The Cipher" by Kathe Koja was just reviewed today on the Free Reads section of the CD website. Have seen this book on a bunch of "the best horror novels that you've never read" lists. Have always wanted to give it a go; however, I don't really purchase paperbacks anymore. Prefer to stick with hardcovers. Does anyone know if a hardcover of this title exists? Did the usual Amazon/ABE search and didn't see a hardcover edition; however, I know that doesn't necessarily indicate that one doesn't exist. Thought I'd ask the forum as I figure that if a hardcover does exist, than perhaps one of you has it in your collection. Any info is appreciated.
    I don't think there's a hardcover edition either, but Meerkat Press just did an oversize PB edition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_-IQBJKYP0

    Goodreads only lists an audiobook, multiple paperbacks and multiple ebooks. Doubt there has been a hardcover available.

    Probably more long these lines, I'd agree.

    The helicopter has stopped circling and they have now said there is no threat to the public. Fortunately the office the shooting occurred is 50 yards from the hospital. They are saying both victims are in the hospital emergency room but are giving no other details.
