, over a year later, yeah maybe, these things happen. But at the time, when it had been about a week since release and I was still waiting for the book to even appear in my local bookstore? Unforgiveable.
And it's big news, too. It's not like a "we find out what Klingons really look like under their helmets" level spoiler - it's a big mofo-ing mofo-er of a mofo.
