This afternoon I am in the backyard soaking up rays and reading an oldie goldie 'salem's Lot. I hit page 247 and see a typo in the first paragraph. I am reading a BCE (I think a 1975 but who knows). I stop reading to go check this out.

I looked at a first edition (page 269) and sure enough 'because' is spelt 'becaue'.
I checked later versions and they have corrected it.

Has anyone else found any type errors in any SK books?

I think there is a list of them on the official SK Message Board.

I remember noticing one in EOTD, but it's been a number of years since I read the book, couldn't give you the specific error.

Thanks Rabbit Trick!
I had better luck here...but still didn't find mention of the salem's lot. Maybe it is only in the 1st - 1st's?
