- Koontz released a signed/lettered edition of this work in 1992. It was originally priced at $750. Hand sewn and hand bound in lizard skin with a black Morocco leather spine, it came in a traycase bound in black Japanese cloth with a silver stamped black Morocco leather onlay on the top cover. The current price is astronomical and would be in the upper range of even the serious collector.
