Use this thread to post any "finds". This post opened up as a service to Dr. Robert James, whom Tor has asked to collect the errors and omissions for Volume 2.

Just a general note, the Index is unreliable in the extreme. I'm mentioned a couple of times in the text and at least three times in the notes.... zero listings in the Index. No Fredric Brown, either. And those are just the first that caught my eye.

p. 173: profit without honor

I think this is a joke rather than a spelling error.

On the day of the Apollo 11 launch in 1969:

p. 306: They were ferried like royalty to a motel in Coco Beach.

Cocoa Beach.

p. 306: where they talked with Hank and Barbie Stine and with Arthur C. Clarke and his wife, Connie.

Clarke's brief marriage to Marilyn Mayfield in 1953 ended in separation, the divorce being finalized in 1964. Who's Connie?

p. 495: Éric H. Picholle's name is misspelled as "Picolle."

Also on this page, Bill Patterson has fallen afoul of an understandable source of confusion.

Éric H. Picholle has CO-AUTHORED a book entitled Solutions Non Satisfaisante with Ugo Bellagamba. (Not "Hugo.") It's a critical look at Heinlein's fiction. Its subtitle is Une Anatomie de Robert A. Heinlein. It was published in 2008.

Éric H. Picholle has EDITED a book entitled Solution Non Satisfaisante. Its subtitle is Heinlein et L'Arme Atomique. It contains the story "Solution Unsatisfactory" along with essays about Heinlein's work by Éric himself and others. It was published in 2009, or anyway, its copyright date is given as 2009.

In his love for the title "Solution Non Satisfaisante," Éric has created a minefield for those attempting to follow his bibliographic trail.

So. On page 495 Patterson writes:

prepared for Solution Non Satisfaisante: Heinlein et l'Arme Atomique, Éric H. Picolle (who translated it into French) and Hugo Bellagamba. Paris: Editions du Somnium, 2010.

I suggest the following correction:

prepared for Solution Non Satisfaisante: Heinlein et l'Arme Atomique, edited by Éric H. Picholle (who translated it into French). Paris: Editions du Somnium, 2009.

--modulo the appropriate capitalization for the titles, or abbreviation for "edited by."

Page 297, Patterson identifies the nominee of the 1968 Democratic National Convention as Eugene McCarthy.
It was Hubert Humphrey.

I placed a pad of tiny Post-It notes inside my copy, to mark any errors I find as I read.

Post subject:  Re: Volume 2, Errors and Omissions

This one's pretty minor. In the captions to the photographs, reference is made to "astronaut" Phil Chapman. Strictly speaking, it would be better to refer to him as having been a member of the astronaut corps. Generally, one isn't an astronaut until actually going into space, and Chapman resigned before making it up there.

Current NASA webpages refer to people who have been selected, but haven't yet flown, as astronaut candidates. But they also refer to Chapman as "former astronaut". So this may be a matter of style, rather than a hard-and-fast error.

The book makes references a couple of places to the 1962 Worldcon in Chicago as Chicon II, and refers to
programming transcription that was put together by Earl Kemp as The Proceedings of Chicon II (see Note 7
on p 533).

While you can find it both ways, I think the convention is more commonly called Chicon III. The book
by Kemp is more properly titled The Proceedings: Chicon III.
