RARA-AVIS: Re: Blocks and Finnish distribution

None of our books has sold out in the sense of there not being any copies available for people to buy; many of our books have gone into second or third printings (which is why there are still copies available for people to buy). To answer the next question someone is bound to ask, no, there is not an easy way to tell whether a given copy of a Hard Case Crime book is a first printing or a later printing. In the case of our first 13 titles, any copy that doesn't have a stiff cardboard "book club" offer bound into the middle of the book is an earlier edition and any copy that does have the bind-in card is a later edition -- but "earlier" doesn't necessarily mean "first."

The only way to be certain of getting a first printing of a given book is to buy a copy the month the book first comes out.
