As copies of Mutiny! get around and are being read, people have been getting in touch highlighting some typos etc.. I have mixed feelings about this… obviously I aimed to put out a ‘perfect’ manuscript, but at the same time, was aware that with the model I was using I didn’t have the services of a professional proof-reader, so there were bound to be errors that crept in and remained hidden… hence the disclaimer ‘there will be errors’ in the front matter.
On another plane, I’m really not too fussed. Of those that have been flagged up, I don’t think any prohibit the basic meaning being communicated… and there’s something wabi-sabi about being content with imperfection.
So hey, if you spot a typo, check with the list I’ll keep here, add it to the comments if it’s not, and we’ll work together to make the 2nd edition a little more perfect…and you can then sit back in satisfaction that you got a dirty, original, raw first edition. Far better, right? All part of the pirate project.
Thanks to Jeff, Matt and Tim for these so far.
