Possibly that publication is sooner than TUC?
Ah, such lols from the past...

I don't think Neuropath is going to enjoy a fresh print run anytime soon, unfortunately, JRControl. You might be doomed to find one of the disparate copies that exist somewhere out there already.

EDIT: As per the thread, it looks like you'll want to grab the non-Tor edition... as you'll be missing some italicized sections of the book.

I haven't seen it in my biggest local (European) bookshop, but that's Eastern Europe for ya. I've been looking around for a print copy to use as weapons for people I want thoroughly mentally disturbed.

No, you're right. I was assuming that Overlook had done NP and Disciple.

Interesting.

No, it says Tor. You can read the beginning of it by previewing the book on amazon.com

Did Overlook even publish Neuropath? The link for the US version on Bakker's blog takes me to the Tor books.

Still one whole publisher who didn't print portions of the book. FB and you both mentioned the US Kindle edition, which would have been Overlook, right?

The Orion (UK) paperback and ebook both have the italicized portions. Don't know about the hardcover or the MMP.

The Penguin prints also seem to have them? I can't tell if there is an ebook version directly from Penguin, the ebooks seem to come from Tor and Orion only.

So this seems to me like a Tor problem specifically.

I doubt Neuropath has enjoyed any resurgence in print runs :(.

I'll gladly do due diligence as to informing publishers of which editions are missing portions but as pail mentioned I'd like to collect information on as many error editions possible.

I wonder if Bakker is aware of this.

I'm curious which other editions might be missing the italicized sections. If everyone posted which edition they own and whether the italicized sections and afterword are included, we could put together a list of which editions are complete and which aren't. We know two of the Tor (USA) editions are incomplete - the mass market paperback, and the Kindle e-book. What about the Tor hardcover?

I would have whichever paperbacks of Canadian Penguin Neuropaths. I've probably owned... four or five of them in my life - one of them might have been trade paperback size. All of them had the italicized sections and the afterword.

Welcome to the Second Apocalypse, pail :).

This isn't an issue limited to the Kindle edition. I have the Tor mass market edition, first printing, ISBN 978-0-7653-6157-8, and all the chapter-opening italicized sections are missing. I only learned from reading this thread that they're also missing from the USA Kindle edition, and was surprised. I could imagine a plausible motive for removing content from a physical version if it reduced printing costs, but why would it be removed from a digital edition? Censorship?

As they say, never assume malicious intent if something can be due to plain stupidity.

Such a great sentiment.
