This Week's Amazon Listing Fail

Description of a Science Fiction first edition listed as Collectible: Very Good

ORIGINAL 1994 EDITION -FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING- COPY. THIS COPY CARRY THE FULL NUMBER LINE OF 12345678910 FOUND ON THE COPYRIGHT PAGE.*~*Nice clean copy! It is lacking the original dust jacket that should have accompanied the book.

 First, nothing inspires confidence like a paragraph of ALL CAPS punctuated with a bit of ASCII argle-bargle that stinks of Ebay.

Second, there's a term for modern fiction 1st editions lacking dust jackets:

Reading Copies.
