    I thought they might change the title to 22/11/63 for the UK edition. I've been in the US for 21 years and I still have to stop and think sometimes when writing dates in US format. MMDDYY just makes no sense...if we told time like that we'd have MM:HH:SS.

    Have you?

    I love Faithful but being a faithful Red Sox fan helps! lol. With apologies to OZ, I have been a die hard Sox fan practically since birth so this book is exciting to read and be able to relive the 2004 World Series win. If you're not a Sox fan,or a baseball fan for that matter, this probably will not be enjoyable for you. Even though THE MAN wrote it Also agree that the original cover is better but I do enjoy seeing A-Rod's face being smashed by V-Tek.
    P.S. srboone-we won't be enemies now will we?
    P.P.S. second C.W. LaSart in that I would buy a freakin cookbook, telephone book, pamphlet..if he wrote it!
    In regards to this thread: Already made room on the shelf, had to move a couple of dozen book for this behemoth!

    I guess not, I could never hold a grudge very long. And you took the time to look over my collection. Besides, it's just a game, right?

    In The Wolves of the Calla, Pere Callahan says that Black Thirteen tempted him with the idea of openning the Cave Doorway to Dallas 11/22/63 and trying to prevent the assasination of JFK. But he realized that B13 would tempt you with the thought that you would be doing good, only to have you discover the truth about your actions later. Susannah thinks it would be a good idea to try since JFK was a gunslinger, but Eddie chimes in that if the Crimson King tried to get Callahan to do this, JFK's death probably foiled some machination of CK's--Oswald might turn out to be a hero!

    My sarcastic joke about an agent of CK having assassinated JFK was probably 180 degrees from the truth. I'm really looking forward to this book!

    I am a lifelong American and if you asked me today's date, I would say "August 4th" not "the fourth of August" so to me, the mm/dd/yyyy makes perfect sense. It probably stems from our earliest teachings and is beyond our control.

    Not really...that's half an hour past, quarter of an hour after etc.

    According to wiki, the US and Belize are the only places where mm/dd/yy is the standard - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_format_by_country

    If you note, the US title is 11/22/63, while the UK title is 11.22.63. I don't really understand why Hodder changed the slashes to periods, but...

    There was a preliminary announcement that Scribner was issuing a signed limited edition. That announcement disappeared after a day or so, but I was able to order a copy from Book Depository. Retail price was listed at $150. I just hope that they do a better job with this one than they did with Under the Dome. That was a real disappointment.
