Sure, but what about the many fans that do care about inter-novel continuity?
And the Crucible trilogy was never meant to be apart of the inter-novel continuity. Plagues of Night
and Raise the Dawn
were. Hell, the events in that book are VITAL to what will occur within the inter-novel continuity now and in the future. Now people who care about such things will have to ignore a few continuity errors that takes place in both books.
It's just annoying that a mistake like this one was made. It seems like it could have been avoided, especially considering what David A. McIntee had to say about this entire debacle.
