Greetings. I have a rather wierd question for you (who seem to be far more knowledgable than I). I have a copy of Generation Warriors (paperback). On the cover it says by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Moon. On the title page inside, though, it says AM and Jody Lynn Nye. Is this a misprint of some kind? The co-author is Ms. Moon, correct?

And it's the single book, not the combined one (Planet Pirates, I think?)

Thank you so much for your help on clearing up my confusion.

Yep. It's a known misprint.

The whole first printing, of 230,000 copies (!) has the typographical error. Elizabeth Moon is correctly listed on the cover, the title page incorrectly lists Jody Lynn Nye.

Yep, Hans has it right (small wonder). So count yourself lucky for owning a true first ed. with such an error! As Elizabeth Moon should count herself lucky for her name being on the cover - imagine if they'd goofed that instead of the title page!

If you are a collector now you have to chase up the 2nd printing with the corrected title page.

Thank you all for your help! I was so confused, which in and of itself is not a strange condition, but in this case easily cleared up.

And yup, now I need a second printing, which will sit alongside this one, and the hardback. I didn't realize I was a collector until I started logging the books for insurance purposes. And making notes about what I needed to go out and buy!

Again, thank you. ~Vicki
