Just finally finished this (I was taking my sweet time). I didn't know Mr. Kotto had served in Vietnam!

Those of you who spotted error, J.W has asked we email them over so he can correct them in future printings.

Here are mine:

  • Page 268, left column, line 2: "Geiger" should be Giger (obviously)
  • Page 277, right column, lines 8 & 10: "sound palate". This should be 'palette', like a painter's palette. A 'palate' is the roof of one's mouth (and while we're on the subject, a 'pallet' is a wooden or plastic slab upon which cargo is moved with a forklift).
  • Page 283, right column, line 26: same thing
  • Page 324, left column, line 35: "five years" - it was six years between the release of Aliens and Alien3.

It's a great book - hope my 'solicited nitpicks' can help make it even better!  ;D

I wish the layout could be improved for a future edition. The most interesting (new) images are so bloody tiny I need a magnifying glass to study them.
