possible booboo?

I know I miss things when reading these books, but why, on page 27 (of the US edition), 8 paragraphs into chapter 3, does it say [I had wanted to get Landen out of The Raven]? It was Jack Schitt that Thursday had to get out of The Raven, right?!

You're right. It IS a booboo. That's why Jasper fixed it on his upgrades page.
Welcome to the fforum, and watch out for the tea and cakes. I think they've been tampered with.

I've been upgraded to Version 1.1, but I still think there are some errors.

At the end oc Ch. 24, would Harris Tweed actually have said, ". . .he might be after you or I next."? Could it be a typesetting error or enthusiastic editing?

I'm quite sure that near the end of Ch. 31, it was a grammasite problem that caused Thursday to say, "I couldn't breath and started to black out."

I thought there was a serious error in Ch. 25 when she said, "Esgipysgod fi, ond. . . " until I kept reading and found the driver of the car "got the message," probably with a chuckle.

Well I sure did notice that, I didn't think they made mistakes like that, I sure it hope it never happens to me when my books get published, all well when you a write books as good as Jasper's who cares!
