‘A Feast for Crows’ eBook Littered with George RR Martin’s Name
Those of us involved with the printed or digital word have all suffered from errors. They just creep in, no matter how rigorous the checks. Hell, I’ve even seen professionally edited texts littered with misspellings and literals. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything this bad. Or this hilarious.
Formatting errors in an eBook version of A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin have resulted in the author’s name being sprinkled throughout the text, often appearing in bizarre places, casting “Martin as any number of items and people”. Here’s a couple of my favorites:
