Wow, TBTB actually listened
to the complaints about the novel. This is the first I've heard of a publisher mandated re-issue to fix continuity errors. I wonder what the rules are regarding author credit and royalties if someone other than the original author re-writes a book? I mean, that is assuming they'll get someone else to "fix" it.
Moreover, will they offer replacements to those who bought the (soon to be rare collectors items) original manuscripts or just make them pay for it a second time? I mean it's not like they're correcting misprints or some other production related typesetting error. They're talking about changing the substance of the text.
Not that I think it'll make things "better" (save perhaps for the wiki people) since a badly written story will still be a badly written story no matter how canon it's references are...still, it feels oddly appropriate that a gaming IP based book is getting a post launch patch.
