Post subject:  Chronological Order of The Running Man Editions

Does anyone happen to know the publishing year associated with each edition featuring new cover art for The Running Man?


There are 3 covers that feature Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 3rd Signet printing of the Running Man had a black background with Arnold on the front, and I can only assume it was released/published in 1987 due to the phrase "See the electrifying movie this fall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger."

Then there is the Hodder paperback from 1988, which is clearly stated on the copyright page.

Then there is the third one, also from Signet, and I can't quite figure out when this was first released.

Once I get past these, then I can move on to other covers. I'm appreciative of any insight anyone can offer.

The problem I have with the first movie tie-in date is that it is dated one year after the movie was released.
