Typos in the Kindle Age

For Wired, Steven Levy considers the state of copy editing for e-books.
Before a recent trip, I downloaded the latest Stephen Hunter novel to my Kindle. Hunter writes about shooters, so it’s not surprising that the name of the book is I, Sniper.

Not that you’d know it from the title screen. The only words on that e-ink page were “I, Snipper.” Snipper! I thought I was about to nestle into a tale of tough guys who take out human targets from hundreds of yards away. But this promised to be the autobiography of a mohel.
