How Can I Buy the Exclusive Edition?
You can get a copy by picking up a free wristband from the Del Rey Booth – Booth 1697 . Wristbands are available as follows:
- Thursday – Sunday, starting when the doors of the main convention show floor open to the general public, we will be giving out wristbands. Wristbands have been set aside for each day.
Wait, did you say EWOK HACKER PIN?
Yes. Yes we did.
Awesome. So, what does the wristband do?
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 head to the Changing Hands Booth – AA1701 (next to the Del Rey booth) any time from show open until 6:00pm* to complete your transaction and pick up your book.
*For Sunday, because of the early show closing, you can finalize your purchase anytime from show open until the close of the show at 5:00pm.
Why do I need a wristband to buy the book?
Two reasons. First, the convention editions are limited, so wristbands work like a ticket, and let us know how many we have to sell each day. Second, since a wristband guarantees you a copy of the exclusive edition, it gives you the 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. 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 eligible to receive a wristband to buy a copy of the exclusive edition ONLY on Sunday.
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 already signed, can I get it personalized?
Yes, the convention edition sold is pre-signed by Daniel José Older, but we will have signings at the Del Rey booth (#1697) with him and he’d be happy to personalize your edition. The signing schedule will be available soon or at the booth.
I don’t want / I missed out on the convention edition. Can I get a regular copy of Last Shot at the booth?
Yes, limited copies of the regular edition for sale at the Changing Hands booth (#AA1701). These will be sold first come first serve, and not limited for each day. When they run out, they are gone.
I can’t make it to Phoenix Comic Fest. Is there another way I can buy the convention edition?
Yes! We will have copies of the convention edition, with the pin and the bag also available at Denver Comic Con in June. Stay tuned for more details.
