This is the one you've been waiting for! If you've noticed any typos or errors of fact in the two aforementioned novels (books 3 and 4 of the Merchant Princes series) I'd be very grateful if you'd list them in a comment under this blog entry. Note: not the last two novels in the series, just the middle two—the latter will get their own thread. As before, please provide some verbatim textual context I can search for in the manuscript, or a page/line number ... and specify which edition you're talking about: ideally the US mass market paperback, which was the final corrected edition prior to the one I'm hunting down typos for.
(Yes, I've been quiet for the past week; death-marched my way to the end of a novel, took one day off, then edited my way through two more novels, then went to a crime festival without a laptop. My hands are thanking me for that latter decision, and I hope to get back to work as usual next week, starting with the next editing marathon. And maybe even an essay or two for the blog ...)
