Fine- in Fine- Dust Jacket. A near perfect copy with typical aging to the text-block with a hint it was probably read once, very slight aging to the boards, straight corners, slight hint of shelf-wear, tiny pinpricks to the upper and lower front corners of the jacket. Still a superior copy. NOTE: The pictures are of the actual item for sale, not stock photos. All books in jackets come with dust jacket covers.

Because of rising demand, TOR modified some of the trade paperbacks into hardcovers for a second state of about 1000 copies. Orbit UK released the book in hardcover probably in about the same number, 2000… Read More
