    See what you mean John, but I guess I was referring more to what I consider to be the "real" Limited Editions (to be honest, I personally don't count the UTD and 11/22/63 amongst my own little collection as being limited editions, they're just, as you say, trades with an additional page or two stuck in them). To me, limiteds are of the Grant, CD, Philtrum, etc etc ilk where they truly are productions

    Ah! You're right!

    But... UTD and 11/22/63 US where limited... to US citizens with US credit card... (yeah that p****d me off big time and the only reason I'll buy something from them in the future would be if they include a one day ticket @ disneyland with SK as personal guide)

    Didn't prevent me from getting them down here (although I really like your SK / Disneyland idea - bloody brilliant !!!!)

    So I'm sat at London City airport for my monthly trip to Scotland, and i'm looking at a trade paperback version of TWTTK which claims to be an 'airport exclusive' - anyone know if the exclusive tag is warranted?
    http://www.armadillorecords.co.uk - I've finally updated it.

    i thought I read somewhere that the paperback was due in October... Or that might have been for 11/22/63, not sure if I got the two mixed up. Sounds pretty exclusive to me as I'm sure there are no readily available paperback versions of the new DT book available.

    Amazon had paperbacks listed for an April 24th release. Was the UK edition though but Amazon(.ca anyway) still didnt even get any copies of the UK HC edition yet so I highly doubt they have paperbacks. lol. Still waiting, I think it may be a while before I get it because they sent me an email saying that they haven't obtained any yet and gave me the option to cancel and that was only yesterday, the next day from release. lol. Figured i'd wait anyway because it's paid for, I dont need it right away and amazon was the only place with free shipping.

    As far as I can figure it out, I have at least one copy of each of the various editions, both US and UK. I haven't received any of the UK editions yet.

    I also have the US proof. (There wasn't one issued in the UK, but I do have a copy of the sampler that was issued.) I also have a couple of other items that I promised I wouldn't disclose.

    I'm still not sure about the WH Smith exclusive.
    What's the difference between that edition and the regular book?
    My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.

    Different cover - more fire around the keyhole. And it has one color Jae Lee plate inside of the book.
