So, according to the Ipecac Store "Neither Here Nor There" is MEL-BK3 and the "Trick & Riddle" Book is MEL-BK4.

NOW WHAT THE HELL IS MEL-BK1 AND MEL-BK2????
To be afraid when you are alone, in the dark, faced with the unknown, the unspeakable; that is understandable fear. To be afraid, mortally afraid, in broad daylight, in a crowded city street, that is to know Melvins.

maybe MEL-BK1 AND MEL-BK2 are the first two pressings of
the hardcover version. The one on the Ipecac store now (MEL-BK3)
is the soft-cover version. Just a guess.

This Trick & Riddle book, is that the one which could be bought on melvins shows and was mentioned as the HAT booklet by some guys in the melvins show reviews section? Or is it something new?

Sounds reasonable. Just checked my order confirmation for the signed hardcover book and it says MEL-BK1.
Was there an un-signed hardcover book as well (MEL-BK2)?

I got the Trick & Riddle book at the Melvins show in NYC.  It's kind of a like a miniature Neither Here Nor There, mostly just little funny pictures of toys and collages and weird photos and a few Melvins live photos and some riddles (but no answers...isn't that typical?)

It's cool.
