The missing Ch. 13
Posted by: Anonymous User (

In my Hodder edition of TN5, the table of contents clearly lists "Ch. 13 Cross Lewis' Number" on page 120. I've finished the book and still haven't figured out whether the missing ch. 13 is intentional.

Insights, anyone?

If you'd like to meet some other Fforde ffans, feel free to come on over to Nextian Chat, where most of us hang out. We have pies (more varieties than anyone could discern), chocolate (but those who have some won't share it), tea, and Battenberg cake (for the unsuspecting).

Nothing wrong with the chapter 13s in my books. Some of his best work, I think. Especially the bit about the dinosaurs.
