Leila (leilasbooks) | 40 comments I was updating Slaughterhouse 5 Or, the Children's Crusade, A Duty-Dance with Death and got confused over the publication date (edition, not original). (isbn: 978-0099800200)

Basically: Amazon.com and .co.uk says 1991 but Vintage Classics says 2008.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/00...

http://www.randomhouse.co.uk/vintage/...

Which one would you say is the correct one? Or maybe the 2008 is a reprint of the edition (but with same isbn...)?


This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments As you suggest, 2008 is probably the date of the specific printing, rather than the edition. Generally, if in doubt, you probably should go with the older date.
