    • The ISBN is printed on the spine. The SBN: "425-03810-6" is stated on the copyright page.
    • Spine prints the Berkley Medallion logo, but the front cover prints the stylized "SF" logo of Berkley Books.
    • Title page gives the publisher as "A Berkley Book" (over) "published by" (over) "Berkley Publishing Corporation". The copyright page gives the publisher's address twice, the second time for "Berkley Medallion Books". This book appears to have been published at the time Berkley was phasing out the Berkley Medallion imprint.

    • Novel is divided into five sections, all but the last titled identically to the previously published short fiction pieces which form the novel. It is unknown to what extent these works were revised to "fix-up" this novel.
    • The author's name is printed in blue foil on the front cover, spine, and back cover.
