>I’ve been submerged with Guide proofreading, a semi-annual communal exercise in eyestrain and Twizzlers and chocolate-fueled mania; yesterday I couldn’t stop calling everyone “enthusiasts” after reading the word one too many times. The eternally unsolved question about typos also came up: should a review mention their presence in a book even when they are few or solitary? Publishers prefer that we not mention them at all, of course, asking us instead to notify them so a correction can be made in the next printing. But our readers will probably be considering the first printing–and if we tell them of a typo they might not buy it, meaning that a second printing becomes questionable.
This is not unassociated with the problem The Higher Power of Lucky has been having with its scrotum.
