    Oh wow, I saw the 20th Anniversary versions of this book and I just knew I had to get them. The new Scribner paperbacks have this nice sandy feel to it that make them feel really premium. I haven't seen the hardcover version but I think it looks just as nice.

    Is anyone else excited enough to want to get these?

    They have a new On Writing edition coming out? Yes, I will definitely get it. This is one of my favorite books of his.

    It couldn't be a 20th anniversary edition of On Writing--it wasn't published until 2000.

    Now that I think of it, Stephen hasn't even been with Scribner for 20 years. The first book he published with them was Bag of Bones and that came out in 1998. They did put out a 10th anniversary edition of On Writing.

    Good Lawd, you made me almost hyperventilate! I panicked when I read your thread title- thought I must have lost ten years somewhere (those darn pesky aliens always abducting me or something like that!)!!!

    I just bought the original book, and when I saw a 10th anniversary edition on Amazon, I wondered if I should return it to get the latest. However, I couldn't find anything to tell me the difference. Is this something I should do? I bought the hardcover and the audio. I am not finished with the book yet, so starting over with a newer version would be no big deal, I just wondered what the difference was. Thanks!

    An updated reading list, but other than that I can't think of anything significant.
