    • This publication has "ISBN 0-345-31357-7" on the copyright page and the SBN 345-31357-7 on the back cover. In September 1984 Ballantine published Job: A Comedy of Justice by Robert A. Heinlein with "ISBN 0-345-31357-7" on the copyright page and the SBN 345-31649-5 on the back cover. As a result, some sources report that the ISBN 0-345-31357-7 is for Job: A Comedy of Justice rather than 1984: Spring / A Choice of Futures.
