OT: Jim Ottaviani's T-Minus printing oddity
ComicsDC friend Jim Ottaviani recently wrote to a graphic novel librarian's list about the hardcover edition of his new book on the space race, T-Minus: The Race to the Moon.
His website says, "Glossary: If you have the nifty (but limited!) hardcover edition,
you'll want to grab the glossary here. Heck, you might want it even if you have the softcover edition, since it'll save you flipping back and forth."
In response to a question about that on the list, Jim noted, "Printing constraints led Aladdin to decide not to include the glossary on the hardcover. The softcover has it on the inside front and back covers.
I wish it were in both. It's a nice extra to have, so that's why I reformatted it to tuck neatly into the hardcover and made it available for download via www.gt-labs.com/tminus.html .
Hopefully that's a useful bit of news for someone. I'll be buying the book from Jim at Heroescon in a couple of weeks.
