Call it "continental drift among the plates."  Those little mass market 
paper backs are pretty kooky. 

And do not even bring up the Franklin Mint /Justine /(1980).  LD put his 
signature on that edition--strictly speaking, as those who place 
implicit faith in the author so often do, no other edition of /Justine 
/carries LD's  /imprimatur/--and he wrote the new intro, but the text 
moves backward and even omits the breaks between episodes. 

Just remind yourself:  the author's intention = make his money while the 
getting is good.
