The Jericho River was first published under the pen name David Carthage. (The first edition’s soft-cover ISBN was 978-0-9854517-0-7, and its e-book ISBN was 978-0-9854517-1-4.) The current edition — the second — uses the author’s actual name. The first edition also included a subtitle: A Magical Novel About the History of Western Civilization. Prior versions of the second edition included that subtitle too, with the word “Magical” removed. But the current version (2.4) of the second edition has no subtitle.
