I've read three hardback first editions in the past month and all of them featured either spelling errors or word ommisions. Don't publishers proof-read their authors' manuscripts any more? I've made a mental note to see if these mistakes reappear in the paperback editions. My suspicion is that we 'early adopters' are paying for the privilege of joining a distributed network of amateur copy-checkers.
