Ive heard there's both a 1982 edition and a 1983 edition of the book, how would I know the difference? Mine says "First edition" on the bottom of the copyright page and has the Y38 code on page 374 (although only the Y is really noticable) can anyone give me more info about this?

The difference is in the verbiage on the back of the dust jacket. The first state has Tabby King's first novel (Small World) as 1982, while the second state is corrected to 1983. The books themselves are identical.

No, not really. The biggest problem with the Pet Semetary edition is that the dust jacket shows wear very easily and finding one in near mint condition is difficult.

Alright, Im sorry to keep bugging but is it the Small World thing that it says on the back?
Mine says "Stephen King lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife Tabitha (author of the well-received fantasy novel Small World and, in 1982, of Caretakers) and their three children."

Yes. They got the date wrong, and corrected it at the second printing.
