Differences Between the Standard Edition and Special Edition eBooks


My original intention was not to have two different books but idea for a special edition came out from the original Indiegogo funding campaign. All paperback copies are the Special Edition version and have all the additional content.


The Standard edition has the entire fictionalized story and that’s all. It is an opportunity to have a small piece of the DayZ world to read away from the computer. The Special Edition eBooks are for those who want to have extra content and learn more about Cherno Journo. It the entire story plus YouTube interview transcripts with Cherno Journo’s own commentary on what these stories meant to him. There are also entries from Cherno Journo’s own Survivor Diaries, a personal journal that he kept for the first few weeks of playing. These entries include strange encounters, his first day and a recount of his first and only murder.
