Suggestion For First Edition Guide In Faq

    First, thanks very much for the inclusion of the "Identifying First Editions" guide located in the FAQ section. It's a very helpful tool for collectors.

    I've just been reviewing the latest books added to it and noticed something which I think needs a minor update. In the entry for Joyland, I think it would be beneficial to include the phrase "No DJ" (along with the price, which is already there) in the box for DJ Price. Since this book is a paperback, there would be no dust jacket.

    Some may say, "Well, that goes without saying since all of Hard Case Crime's publications are paperbacks." But I would point out that "No DJ" was included in the DJ Price column for The Colorado Kid as well as for the Signet version of The Green Mile.

    Also, you may wish to do the same for Rage, The Long Walk, Roadwork and The Running Man, since the first editions of these were all Signet paperbacks as well, and thus had no dust jacket.

    You might also consider doing something similar for The Storm of the Century, although that might be a little problematic since the entry is actually referencing both the first paperback edition as well as the BOMC hardcover edition.

    Just a suggestion, so that the identifying references are consistent across the entire guide.
