The errors below have all been fixed in the paperback edition released on February 8, 2018 by John Murray in the UK and British Commonwealth countries.

It takes a little longer to correct things in print. Here is a list of errors and suggestions. You're welcome to edit this page, file issues or email me if you spot anything that you feel is a mistake.

  • October 1, 2017: On page 43, The mention of the degrees in both C and F seems superfluous seeing as the value is arbitrary and the precision has no bearing on the problem.

  • October 1, 2017: In chapter 1, a plurality of readers appear to think that the character's name isn't funny. On reflection, yeah, maybe it isn't. Change Margie Wana to Morwenna. Similarly, in chapter 5, change Charlie Magna to Charlie.

Margie Wana ↦ Morwenna
Charlie Magna ↦ Charlie
  • June 20, 2017: On page 43, Charlie Magna is said to be sweating due to the heat. In Cape Town. In July. Change July to February. A reader writes

Being from South Africa I just needed to point out the following re Chapter 5's first paragraph and the postman story where it is mentioned that it is 45 °C in Cape Town in July and "sun block" being required etc. Assuming that this is the one and only Cape Town being referred to, i.e. in South Africa, which is in the Southern hemisphere I would just like to point out that in July it is cold and most probably raining, July being in the middle of our winter (summer is from Dec-Feb and Feb would be the hottest month in CT, not July)... #justsaying #justincasenoonehaspickedthisupyet

  • April 27, 2017: On page 43, Charlie Magna is said to have forgotten his hat, yet is shown wearing a hat. Fix the text to say he only forgot his sunblock. Thanks, David Laine.

  • April 2, 2017: On page 57, the dependency matrix ought to have a dot in the cell connecting Eric Clapton and Dave Grohl. Thanks, Ross Kaminsky.

  • April 2, 2017: On pages 69 and 70, the frequencies assigned to "s" and "l" ought to be switched for the trees on the subsequent pages to be correct. Thanks, Ross Kaminsky.

  • April 2, 2017: Art 4 in Chapter 1 somehow went missing in action :) Consider replacing Art 6 on page 12 (guy looking into wells) with it.

  • April 17, 2017: Consider making the solo characters at the end of some of the chapters smaller.
