A quick note to say that I’ve just been asked by PUP to send all the corrections I have, so I have sent the corrections that are listed in comments on the post PCM errata II. Further errata should therefore ideally be pointed out here. I think this means that a reprint with corrections should appear in the next few months, but I’m not sure of the exact time scale.
Once again, many thanks to those who have notified me of errors. Particular thanks this time round go to Axel Boldt, who sent a very long list. He was to PCM errata II as Joseph Myers was to PCM errata I. But others too made observations that will lead to significant improvements when the reprint comes out. It has been disconcerting to see just how many mistakes remained after the effort we spent on eliminating them, but I suppose in a book this size it is inevitable, and I imagine that there are several more lurking there. So do please continue to let me know of any errors that you find. At some point in the not too distant future I’ll try to merge the second list with the first to make it easier for people to see which mistakes have already been spotted. For now, after the break, here is a copy of the instructions I have sent to PUP. (more…)
