According to an Instagram post yesterday by Joe Hill, there is apparently a 20th Anniversary edition of "On Writing" being released. (In his post he said he believed it was being released yesterday, but I think most new books are released on Tuesdays). Just wondering if there will be a hardcover version of this edition?

Ms M. do you know what if any extra material there is in this Anniversary edition?
I haven't seen a copy of the actual book so don't have full details but looks like Owen and Joe have contributed essays. I could be wrong, but don't think that Steve contributed any new material. It would be great if they removed the reference to sending in a copy of the writing exercise but I'm not overly optimistic about that.

I received my 20th anniversary edition. It's nice to have some additional material, but unless you're a big fan or a completist, it's not absolutely essential new stuff, in my opinion. Of course, most of us here are big fans and completists, so...
I'll pick one up for sure. If I could have any book signed by SK, it would be my beat up copy of On Writing.
