The Folio Society is a book club based in the UK, similar to Easton Press in the USA. In fact it may help to think of this book as a very similar type to the Easton Press edition of Dead Zone - both are unsigned editions of under 3,000 copies issued by a book club.

A number of people have reported recieving copies that were damaged in shipping (typically a bumped/dinged corner of the slipcase. The Folio Society has been sending replacment copies to affected folks and letting people keep the digned copies.

The 110 annouced copies that included a signed bookplate could only be won by drawing or first time customers of The Folio society. However no list of winners was published and a number of months later approximatly 90 signed copies were made available for sale for £99.95. It is unclear if The Folio Society really gave away all 110 copies and the 90 offered for sale were additional sheets or not.
