Help with Date A Live Novels

First I wanted to apologize because this will be a lengthy post and I was unsure if this is in the right place. I would of posted it in the Date A Live thread but I didn't want to post such a large topic, and have it get in the way of discussion on there. I wanted to start collecting the light novels, but when looking around there were a few things that I was wondering about. I know there are the 17 main novels, Date a Bullet, the encore side stories, the blu ray and game novels. Also there are some short stories, all which are listed right on the wikipedia page. Where I started to get confused is I saw this same Kurumi illustration but the Japanese characters are different on each http://i.imgur.com/6vDvANd.png
https://danbooru.donmai.us/data/samp...4dc818a914.jpg I have not been able to find what novels these belong too, since none of the wikipedia pages have that cover. I also found on madarake a lottery prize version of that illustration, along with another wedding dress image. Both are a bit different from whats on the above images. I also know there is a Tohka lottery prize as well. I was unsure if these were alternate covers, or completely different novels from anything listed on the wiki. I do know there is a poster, artbook, 11.5 and the Spirit King Game but none of them have that exact image either. I even checked around at the bonuses that come with novels, and the small booklets. There were also a few random novels that had a D where the typical F would be on the cover, and no number. Again sorry for the length of this post, just making sure if I stick to what is on the wiki page that I'm not missing any novels.

I got your back. It isn't a novel - its a special slipcover released with Dragon Magazine last year - originally to commemorate Kurumi's return to the series, and her spin-off series. It was then re-released, alongside a matching one by the illustrator of the Date A Bullet novels for DAL's sixth birthday later that year.

They're just variations on a slipcover made to wrap around the normal cover of Volume 16, 17, DAL V1, or DAL V2. You aren't missing any novels, don't worry.

Thanks for the response I appreciate it. I had a feeling it was something like that. What confused me was there was a listing for a lottery prize, and the seller said they were novels when I asked. https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/...52059&ref=list
I really like the art but there asking way too much for just a cover.
