    Thanks everyone.

    Ellison is far better known for his short fiction and his essays and opinions than his novels, which are very few. Try 'A Boy and His Dog' or 'I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream'. If you hate those, you won't like Ellison. I disagreed with some of his stuff, but not much. He was very intelligent and a whiz at writing, never used a computer and always typed everything on, I believe, an Olympia typewriter. I think Asimov always used a typewriter too. THE GLASS TEAT and THE OTHER GLASS TEAT are great jibes at television. Not as relevant as when they were written, but highly readable.
    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...

    Thanks Frank.

    And now, JUST when you thought it was safe to enter the library again, Hodder & Stoughton terrifies you with yet ANOTHER edition of THE OUTSIDER (the one in the middle), the only edition with the scary (shiver!) entity on the page edges:

    EDIT - Except the proof, of course. I knew that though, really! Why doesn't anyone believe me!

    If I am not mistaken, Mike P. also has or had one.

    Great picture, Steve, I always enjoy seeing a lot of editions of the same book together.

    As soon as the price of the proofs (US and UK) come down to ten bucks or so, I'm all over them!

    Great group!!

    Do you mind sharing the ISBN of the Hodder & Stoughton in the middle?

    I've been looking for the proof with the silhouette on the page edge since someone first posted it here but haven't been able to find a copy. I only know about it because of this site and have never seen it available anywhere... I know it's numbered and limited to I think 300(?) copies. If I'm not going to be able to find the proof I'd like to have the Hodder & Stoughton version at least!
    Please help me find:

    Like, no way am I going to tell you the ISBN number is 978-1-473-67639-8 and that it's available from The Book Depository for $9.44, free shipping. So just forget about it, okay?

    Mine came in a ripped mailer, but the book was still good. That usually does NOT happen with The Book Depository. I've always (except once but they made good on it) had good luck with them.

    Oh, why oh why don't I have yet another edition of THE COLORADO KID by that obscure author, Stephen King!?!

    But...WAIT! I do, I DO have another edition of THE COLORADO KID by Sting, I mean King! The brand new, lavishly illustrated even BETTER edition of THE COLORADO KID. My quest is almost over!

    At the bottom of your first picture, the two without jackets.

    Did they release the three without jackets?

    There are all 3 with no jackets (spring came and they took off their jackets!). If memory serves, these were done in 2010 in an edition of 100 copies each.

    CARI MORA is out in the UK from Heinemann in trade paperback already. I don't know if this is the true first printing as it is not due out in the US until next Tuesday, as I haven't been to a bookstore:

    Hopefully Harris rebounds nicely from Hannibal Rising. He is so good. Usually worth the wait.
