At least I'm pretty sure that the book hasn't been written by David Drake. :lol:

That’s not an “oops” that’s a “yikes”!

Is the whole book like that?

I received my copy today and can confirm the issue, looks like it was the entire run.

Yup same. RFC must be... miffed...

For some reason I think this has happened before? I just can't remember the specifics. Maybe it was a different author.

Since the issue has been confirmed, I've posted something on Baen's Bar for Toni Weisskopf to see.

So... does that make your books more collectable like postage stamps?

To err is human; to really foul things up requires a computer.

True, computers have a way of magnifying human errors and that is almost certainly what happened here.

That could have happened in the pre-computer time as well if the typesetter had made that mistake when setting the pages (or more likely casting the stereotype) since if you can reuse components like the page header you do just that and set it only once.
