Pocket also misspelled Dafydd ab Hugh - as ""Daffyd ab Hugh" - on the three covers of the "Rebels" trilogy, and he once admitted that he didn't notice when he was acknowledging the advance cover slicks.
True story: Many years ago, I signed off on the cover mechanicals for a Damon Knight novel--without noticing that we had forgotten to put the author's name on the book.
Thankfully, I was able to get Knight on the phone before he received the cover flats in the mail!
"It was a mistake! We're going to fix it! And it will never happen again!"
He was actually very good-natured about it . . . .
I once got cover flats for one of my BBC books that had someone else's name on... (Steve Cole, IIRC)
I can top that. I once got a very nice royalty check . . . for a book written by another author.
And, yes, I did the decent thing and returned it!
