“Hey, he’s trying to pass off a previously blogged cover as new.”

“No, technically it’s different. See? The price has changed. So has the collection ID.”

“Isn’t that cheating? Or at least dishonest?”

“Well, yes, both, but I don’t think anyone ever thought otherwise of him.”

“So why does he have two different publishing years?”

“The goofball doesn’t know whether this is the second printing or the third. Or both. Both printings used the same artwork but he’s too cheap to actually buy them, so he’s hedging his bet.”


Update (08/25/2013): Ahem. This is now the correct cover image. Good catch, Freiler!

    4 Questions since you made me go and get my copy:
    1. Isn’t the collection ID d1945 and not d1610?
    2. Inside the book it pimps Pale Gray for Guilt (1968) so aren’t both of your dates wrong?
    3. Would you like a better scan?
    4. Thank you so much for your amazing blog! We all really appreciate it even if we are pedantic.
