I understand the original module has scale issues with a couple of maps. Maybe this book version will present both versions of the module as well as a 5 E version set in that later edition place. What else are you going to do to make the release into a book? Does the island move around like Ravenloft?

Both original versions of the module are included as well as a 5E updated version.

Various placements of the Isle of Dread is discussed, but I was really pleased to see a section discussing how the original placement was on Mystara. We also get a new version of the presentation of the Known World nations as was included in the original X1.
