King's Way Press also offered a second traycase (above, right) separately for the other hardcover editions.  Most of the signed editions are numbered but some unnumbered, signed "PC" editions (Publisher's Copies) are in circulation.  Some of the limited editions included random pages from the original, handwritten manuscript.

Samhain Publishing released a trade paperback version of Killer's Diary in 2013. In 2016, a printer's error produced a small quantitiy of "jumbo size" editions (8-1/2 x 11) that were sold exclusively at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con and have become collector's items.
