On Amazon, the book Worlds of honor 6 (which hasn't been released yet), has two "formats" listed, they're both hardback but have different prices, how can I tell what the difference is?

  • The more expensive "format" has a marginally earlier publish date (14 July, as opposed to 16 July) - maybe these are the first prints?! – MrWhite Mar 23 '13 at 19:53

    @w3d - You should add this as an answer, looking at other books I think you're right, the row with a + is the most recent edition with previous editions as sub-items, though how you can have older editions for an unreleased book I have no idea! – SteB Mar 24 '13 at 15:29
  • @w3d - Items from other sellers (Amazon marketplace) rather than direct from Amazon also introduce a new sub-item (often for the same edition). – SteB Mar 24 '13 at 15:36

As mentioned in comments, it would seem that the only difference is the date of publication. In this instance, the more expensive "format" has a marginally earlier publish date (14 July, as opposed to 16 July) so maybe these are the first prints hot off the press? Consequently you should probably expect to get it a little bit sooner and have the satisfaction that it is one of the first editions. Some of these early editions may even be numbered?
