Comment on Firestarter paperback

Post by ur2ndbiggestfan » Sun Aug 23, 2009 11:06 am

Not a question but just a comment. I remember looking for the first PB editions of Firestarter with the numberline starting at 1. The only way I could get both the black and the white version with the "1" was to buy the boxed set of FIRESTARTER and THE DEAD ZONE. Unfortunately I no longer remember which of the books was in the box because I took THE DEAD ZONE out and put both Firestarters in the box. But the "1" numberline does exist for both states.

I agree--I have a copy of each. Another first printing point is usually on the cover, which states: "By the author of The Dead Zone". I do have, however, a white copy that states "By the author of The Dead Zone and Cujo". All have the full numberline starting with "1".

Interesting! Both my white and black copies have "By the author of the Dead Zone" only, but my 2nd state white copy has "By the Author of the Dead Zone and Cujo".

That one copy is the only one I've seen like that. I wish I could remember where I got it. I do know, though, that I got it for a fairly reasonable price.
