Post Re: Errors and Omissions, Volume 1 of the Bio
I suspect we need a note on "the bottle with the three dimples". The bio has Heinlein use this with reference to Leslyn's alcoholism. One of his characters also uses the term "milk the bottle with the three dimples" -- and it has to be Ben, Jubal or Sam (from Puppet Masters).

Is this some specific kind of alcohol, or just any whiskey?

Phil Sutherland [?] from Australia writes:

On page 57 (Plebe Summer) in item V of "Worldly Wisdom from the Old
Master" there's a reference to "one of Bljdf's letters", and a footnote
indicating that Bljdf is unknown. Has it occurred to you tha Bljdf can
be turned into Alice by substituting the previous letter for each letter
(except the L, which may be a (deliberate?) mistake)? Would
correspondence from Alice make sense in this context?

It certainly does -- and I can't imagine why I didn't twig to that already.

Phil was just given a copy as a gift. Wonder if his was one of the purchases at worldcon or ordered by amazon.com.uk.

Post Re: Errors and Omissions, Volume 1 of the Bio
This one is a little odd -- not the contents, but it came as a message in a Friend Request on FB, and I can't find it in my Facebook information anywhere:

Robert Whitaker Sirignano

Robert says, "You know, Upton Sinclair wasn't a very good looking man and was not exceptionally sober...

& mention of "Gerald McBoing Boing is the late forties is a misplaced point: the cartoons were from the mid fifties.

Enjoyed the bio of RAH, but found some information with regards to date placement in need to tinkering with.".

I think the Mitchell book quotes a back east journalist as saying Sinclair looked like Henry Ford gone slightly fey.

Point taken re Gerald McBoing-Boing cartoons. Would be interested in your date-placement comments. It was a constant problem, because it's really necessary to keep the reader time-place oriented, but it can overwhelm the logical flow of the narrative. I lost the ability to "hear" the prose a couple of years ago (i.e., 2.5 years into the editing process!), so couldn't rely on the writer's tool necessary to correct that as we got toward the final language.

Follow-up re Gerald McBoing Boing. The original story appeared in 1950, with the first UFA film in 1951, so I'm a little more sanguine about the reference on p. 455. However, the language does need to be re-worked, as it implied he had already done them in 1948.

Thanks for the input on format, Geo. It is a work still in progress (I haven't loaded in here some additional comments by Ed Wysocki, because I haven't had time to do the necessary research yet. (That's right, I research error comments the same way I researched the original stuff.)

On page 13, Introduction: "...the fictional lunar landing in [MWSTM] was set in 1970..."

1975 on the original handwritten chart; 1978 in the 1941 and 1950 charts; date removed for the 1967 chart but still positioned after the "Strike of '76"; timeline revised (is retconned too phannish?) back to 1964 in TSBTS. I am not aware of any other specific datings.
