How Can I Get the Exclusive Edition?
First, you need to get a free wristband from the Del Rey section of Booth 2913 – the Lucasfilm pavilion. Wristbands are available as follows:
- Wednesday, preview night, we will give out wristbands at 6:00pm when the floor opens. 200 wristbands will be given out on Wednesday.
- Thursday – Sunday, starting when the doors of the main convention show floor open to the general public, we will be giving out wristbands. 200 wristbands will be given out each day.
What Does the Wristband Get Me?
A wristband allows you to purchase 1 copy of the exclusive edition. Wristbands are specific to each day. Once you receive a wristband, you can come back to the booth any time from 12:00pm – 6:00pm* to complete your transaction and pick up your book. We will NOT be completing transactions and handing out books when wristbands are given out.
*For Wednesday, because of preview night, you can come back to the booth any time from 7:00pm until the floor closes at 9:00pm.
*For Sunday, because of the early show closing, you can finalize your purchase anytime from 12:00pm until the close of the show at 5:00pm.
Why can’t I just buy the book when I get my wristband?
Because mornings tend to be very busy in and around the pavilion, we want to manage our lines as best as possible and be good neighbors to our fellow exhibitors. Since a wristband guarantees you a copy of the exclusive edition, it gives you freedom to head to the panels, signings, and other events you want to see before coming back to get your book at a time that works best for you. No need to wait in line for hours just to buy a book.
What happens if I don’t pick up my book on the day I received a wristband?
Wristbands are only valid for the day they were acquired. If you are unable to purchase your book on the specified date on your wristband, you will need to try and acquire a wristband on a different day. Any unclaimed books will be released on Sunday.
How will leftover books (if any) be distributed Sunday?
If there are leftovers. We will have extra Sunday wristbands to give out in the morning beyond the initial 200. We will only give out wristbands equal to the number of books still available for purchase.
Who is eligible for a wristband?
Only visitors to the show, which does include professionals and guests. Exhibitors and staff are NOT eligible to receive a wristband to buy a copy of the exclusive edition.
Can I stand in line and get an extra wristband for a friend?
No. Wristbands will only be given to individuals present. 1 wristband per person.
The book is pre-signed; will Christie Golden personalize my book?
YES! If you bring your exclusive edition to one of her signings she would be happy to personalize the signature for you. The signing schedule will be available soon.
I don’t want / I missed out on the convention edition. Can I get a regular copy of Inferno Squad at the booth?
Yes, we will have very limited copies of the regular edition for sale at the booth. These will be sold first come first serve, and not limited for each day. When they run out, they are gone.
If you’re unable to make it to SDCC, you can still order the regular edition of Inferno Squad here.
