I've just been re-reading this book in the Heron edition, and there seems to be an error in the text. On p268, Menes is explaining about the much-disliked obligation to work in the mines:

I don't like to sound a negative note in among all this rejoicing, but I've just noticed .... haven't Bloomsbury spelt DW's middle name incorrectly?

And how was the collation, Charles? Was it up to scratch? Does it compare well to The Sword of Fate? Think
