Desperation/Regulators set

Post by AlexxKing69 » Thu Sep 05, 2013 2:06 pm

Does anyone know if the Shrink wrapped set with Desperation, The Regulators, and the "Keep you up all night light" have the original first edition, first printing or are they a different print? They have the same covers and I do believe the set was released in 1996 but I know sometimes when books are released in sets they can sometimes be marked as first editions without being the actual original first.

They are both first printings. I also have a shrink wrapped set.

Amazon says "Viking Adult; Book and access edition (1996)" although thats supplied by Amazon, not the seller I'm getting it from.

I've never heard the term before. I have no idea what "book and access edition" means.

I've never seen one of these sets opened. Is the night light branded? Is it actually worth picking up as a cool King promo item?

I should be getting mine on Saturday, when I get it I'll be glad to tell you. (Unless jhanic answers your question first)

My set is still in the shrink wrap, so I can't answer if the light is branded or not.
