    I was under the impression (sorry my memory is not what it used to be) the "2" states were printed at the same time, but at different presses? When I went to return my mis-printed edition, I found the local B&N to have about 50/50 mix of the book. This was the week of release.

    Scored a signed The Twelve arc early in the eBay offerings, reading now after a re-read of The Passage.

    Ah fuck, so now I need to get the error edition too. I figured it was just a small handful of books and they noticed it during printing. This changes things.

    Thanks for the info.

    Never bought into the F-Upped Edition collecting.
    No different IMHO than a dented edition. (Start up the flame throwers!)

    The corrected version is 2 in the print line? Need to climb ladder in The Closet and pull down corrected version. In case I slip and fall, someone else check copies please. My fault if I'm telling everyone wrong. Off to The Closet.

    I'd say the error edition is the first state, and the corrected version is the second state.

    Ah, thanks. I didn't know this. In that case I agree that the 'error' edition is collectible (to a certain degree).

    It doesn't really matter to me because I want all the states anyway.

    I hope to have a THE TWELVE proof one day too Karl. I'm glad you found one. I'd never read a proof of a book I'm going to buy the trade edition of, but that's because I'm so far behind in my reading all the time. However, I do plan on reading most of the ARCs CD sent me through the reading clubs.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    As mentioned, both states (of the 1st edtion, 1st printing) were released at the same time. The error was a result of more than one printer being used.
    I think it's funny how at the time it was just one of those things you deal with, and now (that the second of the trilogy) is due out, collector's go apoplectic about it (not having one of each).
    Oh, just to throw a monkey wrench into it, Cronin pre-signed pages that were tipped in books-most of which were put on display in advance of his appearance at a reading, and stickered as "signed". He then signed books after the reading.
    Therefore the following states of the trade US 1St Edition 1St printing exist (perhaps more):
    • 1st, 1st with errors.
    • 1st 1st without noted errors.
    • 1st 1st with pre-signed tipped in signature sheet-and a sticker on front denoting signed by author-with errors.
    • 1st 1st with pre-signed tipped in signature sheet-and a sticker on front denoting signed by author-without errors.
    • 1st 1st with pre-signed tipped in signature sheet-and a sticker on front denoting signed by author-with errors, and additionally signed/dated by Cronin.
    • 1st 1st with pre-signed tipped in signature sheet-and a sticker on front denoting signed by author-without errors and additionally signed/dated by Cronin.
    Etc. Etc.

    The errors themselves are almost irrelevant-to Collectors. A publishers nightmare, but just an errata for readers.
    Who knows, but I doubt in 25 years that any of the versions will be worth (sell for) much. Too many people know, and too many have versions to make it more than just interesting.
    I damn near;-actually I did, give copies away back in July 2010.

    These are from Cronin's reading/Q&A July 19,2010. The first one is dedicated to carlosdetweiler:

    Pretty funny! For newcomers the story is that Jerome said he was going to a signing and Q&A with Justin Cronin. He asked the forum members if they had any questions they would like for him to ask. Because I usually act like a smart-ass I said "Yeah. Ask him where he gets his ideas." Never dreamed he would actually ask him that!

    Yes. It was a funny comment on your part in reference to a question that drives SK nuts.

    I don't 'collect' Cronin to the extent that I look for signed editions and ARCs but in this case I would love to get my hands on one, just so I can read it during my upcoming holiday....

    To start saving for your wedding, I think the only smart thing to do would be to sell it to me.

    Random House is sending me an ARC, too.

    Okay, no they're not.

    I've desperately wanted to read the few excerpts that've been released in the last year, but am holding off until I have the whole book.

    Jerome, if you are interested in selling that arc after you read it, I would love to purchase from you!
