I was engrossed in William Gibson’s Spook Country when I discovered a binding error in my copy. Ironic since the missing chunk occurs just after Chapter 55 “Phantom Gun Syndrome”. So I managed to locate a complete version of the text and avoid the gap between pages 246 and 311.
Elsewhere while reading Pattern Recognition I came across a misprint which led to some interesting interpretation. See Sine Die 15. Dealing with what’s on the page is quite different from speculating about the missing…
Still it’s eerie to read the line “From behind, he saw Brown’s hand touch the place where his gun wasn’t” and then turn to a lot of prose that wasn’t.
And so for day 269
