Richard Simpkin asked over on the Universes blog if it would be possible to fix the various typos, etc. in the first-original mass market paperbacks of the Deed. He could think of one off the top of his head. So could I (but I don’t know yet if we had the same one in mind.) So I’m opening up a topic where you can post the ones you’ve noticed, and meanwhile I’ll ask Baen Books if they’re prepared to fix a few things that slid through. Please reference the mistakes to the title (since the anniversary edition will be in three separate ones) and if possible the page 3 of the original paperback. At this point I don’t know how many, if any, of the errors they’re going to have time to fix. My guess is that they’ll be willing to fix typos & misspellings, but not change the places where it was my research or analysis that went wrong, because that would falsify the “new edition” thing. Or maybe not. We’ll see.

Since several of you have pointed out mistakes in the new book, I think we need a thread for that, so I can (eventually) put an Errata notice on the main Paksworld website in a proper scholarly way (there’s a tough of sarcasm in that last phrase. Don’t miss it.) I’m going to keep the errata threads separate for each book. Read the rest of this entry »

An alert Canadian reader pointed out an error that I had missed in my read-through of the paperback.
Page 456 has part of the paragraph missing. This is the last page of Chapter Thirty, facing the first page of Chapter Thirty-one.
Text should read as follows:
“But you’re our king,” Sier Tolmaric said. “You’re what we hoped for, all those years since your sister died–yes, half-elf, but a man who could–who would–stand up for us. You lived as a human all those years, not influenced by elven magery.” Tolmaric’s expression was pleading, his hands reached out.
….As it appears in my copy, the page starts with “hoped for.”
