This book was put together by fan for fans.

My understanding is that none of the writers or editors are professional authors or writers.
So it is understandable that a few minor typos etc were not spotted in spite of the input being checked many times.

The question of whether to have left the entire fan's interviews and input, etc as they were or to 'edit' them for factual correctness (and grammar and spelling) is a dilemma.

These are people's memories of how they remember things and many people's memories are sadly not correct.
Plus of course everyone remembers things differently.

But I personally think these have correctly been left EXACTLY as the people wrote them, complete with factual errors, etc..

Does one therefore also edit old interviews that have now been proved to have factual errors due to new info ??
The best example of this is the number of interviews with people saying Norman stole Buddy's money where it has been proved by Griggs and lately the new Petty book that this was not the case at all. But many interviews still state this as fact.

Re Keith Allison: for years it was assumed he was NOT a relative of JI's but only recently has it come to light that he was a VERY distant cousin. So older interviews were not wrong at the time they were conducted.

Being pedantic one can see there are many punctuation, grammar, spelling and spacing mistakes in Danís short post above.

Nobody is perfect.
