Best-selling Superman Novel Returns in New Edition

"With the book going back into print, I was given an opportunity to go over the book's galleys one more time, tidying up typos that crept into earlier editions, and making a few minor adjustments to copy here and there. But unless you sat down with the various editions side-by-side, you probably wouldn't notice the changes."

- Roger Stern

February 2004:

The New York Times bestseller, The Death and Life of Superman, will return this March in its first trade paperback edition from Barnes & Noble Publishing.

Written by well-known comic book creator and novelist Roger Stern, The Death and Life of Superman was originally published in a hardcover edition by Bantam Books in 1993 and spent five weeks on the New York Times Bestsellers List.

The new, revised, tenth-anniversary edition from Barnes & Noble Publishing includes new introductions by Stern and DC Comics editor Mike Carlin, and a new postscript by the novel's editor, Charles Kochman. The Death and Life of Superman adapts and expands upon the story originally appearing in the best-selling Superman comic book series, exploring in depth the Man of Steel's cataclysmic battle with Doomsday and the dark days following Superman's funeral. It reveals the truth about the four mysterious super-beings that simultaneously appeared after Superman's death, each claiming to be the last son of Krypton. And, at its heart, the novel recounts the epic romance of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

Stern was one of the core Superman writers who contributed to the comic books that inspired the novel. He is also the author of Smallville: Strange Visitors -- an original novel from Warner Books based on the characters in hit WB television series -- and is currently at work on his third novel, a new Superman/Justice League story, for Pocket Books.

The Death and Life of Superman by Roger Stern is a trade paperback from Barnes & Noble Publishing [ISBN: 076075439X]. Its publication date is March 2004, with a price of $9.95.
