What is it with the misuse of words and the endless typos in new publications? I'm lately blasting through new mystery novels, and the last four have had multiple errors. Some could have been caught by spell-check, for crying out loud. Others, a live editor should have picked up. Like "talking a walk" instead of "taking" one. I also notice that authors themselves get a little snippy when errors are pointed out by fans. Could that be part of the problem? There is some sort of frothing zeal in the publishing world today that has put quality on the backburner. I don't like it a bit.
