Texting Problems






Berkley 2495       Berkley 2497







These two Berkley Books were published in January 1974.  The oddity here is that each book contains the other book’s text.  This is not, however, a mere case of wrapping the wrong covers around the printed pages.  Everything about book # 2495; the cover, title page, copyright page and running head; proclaims it to be The Man in Question by John Godey.  Likewise, the cover, title page, copyright page and inside blurb describe book # 2497 as Night of Delusions by Keith Laumer.  Obviously, the mix-up occurred somewhere in the compositing stage; the entire print runs of both books were released this way and both were recalled by the publisher as soon as the error was spotted.
