Post subject:  The Wastelands Viking edition

I own all of the Viking reprints of the first four Dark Tower books. The copy of the Waste Lands that I purchased says Viking on the spine and on the book jacket but on the copyright page it says it was published by Plume. It does say that it was printed in 2003 simultaneously with a Viking edition or something along those lines. I realize Plume and Viking were both part of Penguin Publishing but I was just curious if the copy I purchased is less desirable than one by Viking. It looks identical and again even has Viking on the spine and dust jacket. I thought that was strange and couldn't find anything on the net about it. Any knowledge on this would be appreciated. Thanks

Can you post a photo? I think that would help quite a bit.

Here are some pictures. Also there is no price on the inside of the dust jacket. Were there book club editions of these?

Yes, there were book club editions. Yours, by the number line, is a second printing.
