Three editions of the series are not shown on the front cover, unless one is looking at a purple edition on which there is actually the smaller picture of the 2004 first time Moscow (Russia) edition of the book. This is the 1996 picture of the author from the Chapter 4 of the 1st volume.
In 2011, the volume 2 appeared, in which were the stories of 2005 to 2010. The greenish-bluish book on the front cover with the author on the background of Pacific ocean in California is the 2nd edition of the 2nd volume that was updated with the story of 2019 and republished in summer of 2020 at Barnes and Noble.
