Heart-Shaped Box update from the publisher: “Joe’s main publisher, HarperCollins, has asked that all copies of the second printing of the Subterranean Edition of Heart-Shaped Box be signed, rather than just the 100 deluxe copies, as originally planned. Joe and I talked, and it turns out there was a miscommunication between Joe’s agent and HarperCollins about exactly what portion of the reprint would be signed, so we’ve decided to accommodate them. It will take an extra week or two to have the extra signature pages printed and send to the author for signing. We’ll keep everyone posted as to the book’s progress via our online newsletter.”
Please note, the bonus material will still only appear in the extra 100 copies, already sold out. The only change here is that all copies of the reprint will now be signed. To pre-order: Heart-Shaped Box
