Dear John:

On your website, you said that you would be sending me a signed, first edition, first printing hardcover copy of "The Wise Man's Fear" by Patrick Rothfuss. I got the book today, and noticed that there is no number line on the copyright page indicating that this is, in fact, a first edition, first printing. Do you have any idea why that is?

Virginia replies:
The number line for Patrick Rothfuss' The Wise Man's Fear does not have a number line. Penguin Publishing confirmed that they mistakenly left off the number line in the first edition, first printing. Thanks for asking!
