Call of Nature

We get the text of the Lone Wolf books by scanning them and running the images through OCR software that converts the images to text files. The software isn't perfect. Part of the reason it takes us so blasted long to publish the books is the effort required to pick up after the OCR program.

Sometimes these scanning errors are amusing. This time, LeRoy McSwain caught one that makes perfect sense, and we wanted to share this with you. Can you spot what's wrong?

You spur your horse to the gallop and steer him towards the palisade. The guards see you bearing down and one of them panics and pees.(Mydnight's Hero, Section 189)

We toyed briefly with the idea of pretending we never found it and leaving it in the book, but good sense (regrettably) prevailed.


  • What good sense? The Grand Master is such a formidable foe that it is perfectly normal for a soldier to pee in front a horse rushing torwards him with a mad Kai lord on its back!

  • Well, this was a true winner.

    And actually realistic - we are talking about a guy who went into the dark lords territory, and slew the big bad guy himself.

    Anyways - my favorite memory of the series was the battle of Cetza - I could never survive it but what a blast!
