"Help us identify errors, typos, etc"


          

Find a misspelling, typo, or glaring error in logic in one of Louis' books? Well this is the place to let us know. We'll compile the list and get it off to the publisher in an effort to get them corrected.

NOTE: Any changes will be gradual and may not show up for years depending on the printing schedule and logistics involved in making changes. But we'll give it our best effort.

ALSO: Please don't include printing or binding errors such as the last half of the book bound in upside down or missing chapters or duplicate chapters in a book. These are packaging errors and must be dealt with by the original retail seller of the book to you.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Paul

Hi Paul,

One possibility in "Get Out of Towm" sent to you by email. Too long to paste into the forum.

Thanks Hal. I've got it but I think it slipped through at Bantam. One of the reasons for gathering a bunch of corrections is I can follow up more easily and also be sure they put someone on it and get it all done at once.

Someone quite recently wrote in about an error in consistency in Utah Blaine, something to the effect that a character was lynched but was later referred to as having been shot, or vice versa.

Here it is. It was from the eagle-eyed Peter:
Just started reading this a few minutes ago. On page 5 a man named Gid Blake is said to have died in a shootout with vigilantes. Then on page 6 you find this: "He was not at all satisfied about the hanging of Gid Blake..."
I occasionally see misspelled words in books but I don't ever remember seeing anything like this before.

Hi. In The Sackett Brand, LL mistakenly writes Ange Kerry out of Tell's life. Please correct! :)

If we are going to use any help you can give us there must be page numbers and A BIT OF TEXT so we can search it in a computer file.

We are looking for CONCRETE issues, he says on thing here and another thing there, or mis-spellings or typos.

I won't be rewriting bits of stories to correct things unless it was obvious to me what Dad intended and probably not even then. But I really do appreciate the help in perfecting our product.

hi Beau. It looks like you're directing "SPECIFICS" at my post, but I was totally joking, kidding. Not that we did not feel so sorry for poor ole' homely Tell when Ange was killed...but the post was meant strictly facetiously.

I laughed out loud when I read this. I think pretty much everyone agrees with your sentiment. I would think he could have written the same story except for having her get kidnapped and it would have worked just as well. Oh well.
