So, how’s this for fun?
There is a misspelled word in AlphaOops!
Yes, that’s right…and I’m not going to tell you what it is.
Suffice it to say that I didn’t realize it and the publisher didn’t realize it — it was brought to my attention about half an hour ago by a coworker. He was looking up AlphaOops words in the dictionary with his daughter last night.
The good news is, we’ve caught this error JUST in time, because the second printing is scheduled to go to press as we speak.
That’s right, ladies and gents, you now officially have a collector’s item. It’s my upside-down airplane.
I suddenly feel the need to spend my entire paycheck on every first edition of AlphaOops I can get my hands on…
