Just saw there was a contest to design a new cover: http://www.mediabistro.com/gal...ahrenheit-451_b60910

It will be great, looking forward to it!

Anyone bought their copy of the 60th anniversary edition yet? I have it on good authority that Barnes & Noble are stacking them high in their stores. (We don't have B&N over here.)

In case you're wondering, there's new content in there: an introduction by Neil Gaiman, and nearly 20,000 words on the history and contexts of the book put together by Jon Eller. As well as Jon's essay, there's a collection of commentaries from the likes of Kingsley Amis, Margaret Atwood, Gilbert Highet and Bertrand Russell.

I look forward to adding this to the numerous F451 editions in my RB library. One major regret...there will be no autograph inside of this historic 60th Yr. publication!

Well, you could get Eller and Gaiman to sign it, but I take your point.

Yes, last night. We have a B&N. I bought their only copy. Frowner
Will be reading it more this evening.

(Sad aside. We have only one bookstore, and one used bookstore, and the Friends of the Library Bookstore in Tuscaloosa. Our Books-a-Million closed last month.)

Their only REMAINING copy. Maybe they had sold many more before you got there, and will now have to re-stock!

For book collectors it is frustrating in that the trade paperback is what is called a First Thus in that it has new material yet the publisher has continued the printing number as the 9th printing when it should start over again at 1.

I am lucky to have three bookshops within a three block walk of my home. One of which is the one recently written about in the Huffington Post as Ray's favorite bookshop.

They just received a delivery of the Hardback of the 60th Anniversary edition. I'll be paying for it today but won't take it for a few days so Neil Gaiman can sign it. (If this is considered bragging please forgive my boast.)

The publisher's website still doesn't show that there is anything special about this particular edition, other than it having new cover art. No mention of introductions or the materials provided by Jon Eller. Still showing the publication date as January 2012 (instead of June 2013), and still showing it as out of stock (which might be true, but is surprising).

And half of the links to online booksellers still link to "ordinary" editions of the book.
