Notes
Edited by August Derleth
2634 copies printed
According to Jack Chalker & Mark Owings in their tome, The Science-Fantasy Publishers, there are two states to the dust jacket, but not to the book.

From Chalker: "The stock used on this jacket is coated and particularly prone to rubbing and a lot of jackets decayed in storage. The original jacket is blue with lettering by Frank Utpatel; the reprinted jackets are printed with lettering by Gary Gore in gold and has a new and updated back jacket ad. Please note that there are two states only of the jacket, not the book. An errata slip was also printed at the same time as the new jackets and included with later copies of the book."
