Appendix D

Books that have Koontz review quotes

Each of the books here contains either on their covers or inside the book, a review quote, or ‘blurb’ from Dean Koontz. In some cases the blurb is for the book and in others for the author. I am not specifying here in this listing. Also, I have listed the year of the publication of the edition containing the relevant blurb. (For example, if the blurb appears on the paperback but did not appear on the hardcover, I have listed the year of the paperback release.) Lastly, in some cases, when the blurb is for the author, more than one title by that author may contain the same blurb.
