Gerald's game DJ price

Post by miserywilkes » Sat Mar 08, 2014 5:46 am

just thought i'd bring this up, why doesn't the 1st Viking edition of Gerald's game have a Canadian price, and just the $23.50 ?

We had our own...LOL. Here is a shot of a book bought in Canada and one in the USA. Copyright pages, books and dustjackets are identical...ecept for the price.

Ha! , being in the UK i thought that the Viking editions were published in the US only, do you have a Canadian version for all the Vikings or just Gerald's game? i'm interested to know now! :geek:

It is rare to see just a Canadian price, I have 2 or 3 only, most have both prices. The Canadian arm of Viking prints lots of SK books with both prices with no way of telling if it was printed in the US or here.

I believe all the four Richard Bachman paperbacks were printed in Canada. I read/heard SK wanted to take extra steps to protect his identity. I stand to be corrected.

Things got a little confusing with The Regulators. Look at the two copyright pages. Both run down the
987654321 numbers. One is printed in Canada, and the other USA. CP is different.

Prices only say USD or CND. Canada had a weak dollar in 1996.
