  • Cover: Edward Gorey
  • Notes:
    • "Book Club Edition" printed at the bottom of the front flap of the dustjacket indicates a printing by Doubleday for its various book clubs.
    • The book itself appears to be a trade edition for the following reasons:
      • Copyright page contains the complete Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data. In 1985, this wasn't done in book club editions.
      • An ISBN (0-385-18549-9) and LCCN: 84-24710 are stated on the copyright page. Again, this wasn't the common practice for book club editions in 1985.
      • Almost all original editions published by Doubleday for its book clubs ordinarily would be under their Nelson Doubleday imprint.
      • Locus1 gives this as the first edition, and the 1991 Dorset edition was the first trade edition.
    • Selection of the Science Fiction Book Club for May 1985.
    • No printed price or stated date of publication. Both given here are taken from Locus1.
    • "5144" printed at the bottom on the back of the dustjacket.
    • Gutter code "P014" on page 622 indicates a printing in April 1985.
    • Cover and spine of the dustjacket only credits Marvin Kaye. The title page credits state "Selected by Marvin Kaye (over) With Saralee Kaye"
