The Terminal Experiment
On the left, the original paperback edition published by HarperPrism in 1995 (ISBN 0-061-05310-4).
This is the third-printing version, released in October 1996. The first two printings had the words "THE TERMINAL EXPERIMENT" embossed and gold-stamped. This printing adds the "Best Novel Nebula Award Winner" starburst.
Also, the first printing had the words "Science Fiction" on the spine; the second and subsequent printings changed that to just "Fiction," in hopes of going after more of Michael Crichton's audience.
On the right, the Ace reprint paperback edition published in 2011 (ISBN 978-0-441-02080-5).
