  • Notes:
    • This appears to be an exact duplicate, except for the cover and DJ, of the 1982 Octopus edition, e.g. with the same pagination for the contents. The copyright page says "This edition was first published in Great Britain in 1982 by Octopus Books Limited", and no other date is listed. All references we have found to the book list it as published in 1982. The DJ front flap lists it as published by Marks and Spencer, a department store that does not independently publish books. It seems likely that this has roughly the same relationship to the original book as a Book Club edition does: published slightly later, and marketed at a lower cost. Thus while this may have been released in 1982, it may have been released slightly later (e.g. 1983).
    • The attached image (from Verifier 1) has a £2.50 price sticker, but we have seen other copies without that sticker, hence it cannot be assumed to be the original price. (But the original price is no less than this.)
