Caveat emptor: as far as I can tell from Amazon's "Look Inside", the Wildside Press editions of this book OMIT THE PROLOGUE. Granted, it's only one page, but it does contain some important foreshadowing. It's all Don Wollheim's fault for printing the prologue in the wrong place in the DAW Books first edition - it's on true page 1 opposite the inside front cover and before the title page. But Wildside Press also dropped the ball badly on this one, because if they had only bothered to read Swann's Wikipedia bibliography they would have KNOWN that and reproduced it in the right place. In short: if you want the complete text, by the DAW paperback and start reading inside the front cover.
