From an online news item:

"The Mercenary ... will keep you on the edge of your seat until the climatic action-filled ending."

Russell Crowe has apologised for a rant on twitter concerning circumcision. The background to this 'news' story:-

His 140-character tirades were triggered by a tweeted inquiry from the expectant parent of a son who asked, "Do you think I should get him circumstanced?"

My bold :lol:

There's an infamous typo in the novelisation of the Doctor Who TV story 'Delta and the Bannermen', where a missing 'r' results in the Doctor 'peeing over a shelf' at one point.

Maybe he was just marking his territory?

A friend of mine tweeted that he found this in a library catalogue:

A magnificent typo has earned its own Guardian piece. All the more magnificent as it's from a Romance novel:

Quote:
He stiffened for a moment but then she felt his muscles loosen as he shitted on the ground.


It should've said "shifted", but I think I prefer this version! :lol:

Just finished reading a story in which books 'line all of the wails'...

Sadly it wasn't an isolated incident.

What happens when you push the wailers to make an out-right scream? :shock:

My first book, published by Gollancz in 1995, was a collection of funny press cuttings called "Cannibal Victims Speak Out." It’s been out of print for years, but I’m pleased to say it’s now available, extremely cheaply, as a multi-format e-book at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/102004, or from your usual e-book supplier.

Just read a 'great' typo where one vehicle 'undertook' another one on the motorway.

It's an ARC though, so I'm going to assume the error didn't make it into the final product.
