paperback release in April 2010
According to Amazon.ca, the paperback version comes out on April 1st, 2010.

So ...if Stephenie plans to be working on the next book "in a year or so", maybe that means the extra chapter in The Host will be a sneak preview of the next book?!

That makes sense to me. I've seen authors do sneak previews of a chapter from the next book before, but I can't think of examples where they included deleted material from that same book in a new edition of it. They usually say that everything that is deleted is done so for a reason, whether it wasn't up to their writing standards, or it was unnecessary and broke the story's momentum, or whatever. So, it probably is a sneak peek at a little bit from the next book in the series. Can you imagine how minutely we'll be dissecting it when she throws us a bone like this? :-) Can't wait.

I agree! Anytime Stephenie's had outtakes she's posted them on her website. And with the New Moon paperback, she added the Eclipse Chapter 1 at the end of the book. Sooo I'm hoping it's the same pattern and that it's the sequels Chapter 1.

Oh yes, I know I'll be dissecting the whole new chapter with a magnifying glass. I'll probably read it 20 times over.

Wth is a claw beast? lol.
fortheelovefortheelove on November 17th, 2009 12:50 am (UTC)
I don't know. I remember Wanderer's nickname Rides the Beast, but was there actually being a "claw beast"?
Lindsey ☂shadybrightside on November 17th, 2009 12:54 am (UTC)
Hmm. That is true...maybe that's the name of one of the species, although I don't remember it so if it was, it might have been mentioned ONCE ...which I guess is enough to warrant a tag? o_O
fortheelovefortheelove on November 17th, 2009 01:06 am (UTC)
I don't remember. I'd have to skim through to the end and see if she mentions it in her story. Wanderer had a lot of stories.

Yeah and with the tags, I love how Uncle Jeb is tagged first, but Wanderer, Jared, Ian, Jamie..none of those names are tagged.

I'm not sure if you can see the tags on amazon.ca site, but on amazon.com you can see the tags. (scroll down a bit)

I thought the Host was already in paperback? I could've sworn I've seen it
fortheelovefortheelove on November 17th, 2009 01:08 am (UTC)
I think it is, but this is probably just another edition. I have the first paperback version of New Moon, but there are a couple editions with extras (posters, ect). None though with extra chapters that I remember - The Host is the first!!!

aah okay :)

THIS IS SO EXCITING. I love all this new Host stuff that's happening.
Lindsey ☂shadybrightside on November 17th, 2009 01:26 am (UTC)
I have yet to see it in paperback, only in hardcover, so I don't think it's out yet...

I'm pretty sure I've seen it in paperback, but I'm definitely buying the copy with the new chapter :)
erinistaerinista on November 18th, 2009 05:21 pm (UTC)
weird, in England the only version out is paperback. Its a shame i'll miss out on the extra chapter :(
Lindsey ☂shadybrightside on November 18th, 2009 08:18 pm (UTC)
REALLY? It's so weird, I've NEVER seen it in paperback, so I assumed that it wasn't released yet.

PS. Don't worry. I'm sure that whatever extras are included will be posted either here or somewhere ;)
erinistaerinista on November 20th, 2009 12:46 pm (UTC)
that would be awesome, thank you :)

but yeah the copies me and my friends have are paperback. hmm.

Maybe in the US they only printed Hardcover and overseas Paperback for the most part.

There's a couple paperback versions of Twilight and New Moon with extras (posters, cards, ect). SO I guess this will be another edition of The Host but instead of a poster - an extra Chapter...hopefully Chapter 1 of the sequel (crosses fingers).
