Question Generation Warriors Misprint

I just got done reading Generation Warriors when I noticed this...

On the cover, the authors credited are Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Moon.

On the title page, the authors are Anne McCaffrey and Jody Lynn Nye.

At least this is so in my copy. Anyone else noticed this?

That's a known misprint in the 1st printing of the Baen paperback edition (which means you must have a 1st edition, 1st printing, congrats!). It's not exactly rare though as there were about 230,000 copies made in that first printing run.

I have a 3rd printing, and it correctly lists Elizabeth Moon instead of Nye on the title page.

Good job noticing the goof-up!
