Topic: Why was PSYCHLONE released as LOST SOULS?

Greetings Greg Bear:

I am a dedicated Greg Bear reader and an obsessive Greg Bear collector. I have an edition of almost every novel you have released, some in multiple editions. I even have an edition of EARLY HARVEST, I think it's #379? I love it all.

I recently obtained a copy of DEAD SOULS from Amazon.com used books. I was very happy to add it to my collection, along side the copy of PSYCHLONE I read.

I was just curious why the title change? Are there any differences in the editions? I searched these discussions, and the archives, to the best of my ability and did not come across an explanation. Please forgive my ignorance.

Keep up the great work. I am totally amp'd about the upcoming Halo book. I will have to buy 2 copies when it is released. One copy for my son to read, another for me.

Regards, Jon Kroll

Ace/Charter published PSYCHLONE way back then, and reissued it as LOST SOULS. Both covers were entertaining but commercially terrible. So I did my own cover for the Tor paperback, which remained in print for almost twenty years! (Look on the mailbox...)
