Mr. McCarthy, I've been reading your excellently told "Derby Man" series. Unfortunately, somewhere between your written word and the Amazon Kindle versions, the books become rife with, what I assume to be, optical character recognition (OCR) scanner issues. Perfectly correct words become unintelligible. "The" becomes 'Die'; "Comstock" becomes 'Corn-stock'; "He" becomes either 'Ile' or l'e'; "gear" becomes 'guri'; "I'm" becomes 'Tin'; "I'll" becomes 'FU'; a flyspeck becomes a period or comma. I constantly see "*'s" and a " '9 " at the end of sentences. Often words are dropped.
Imagine the picture that comes to mind when one reads, "We will conquer Donner Pass or die frying, as did the wayfarers on that ill-fated wagon train before us!"
Additionally, the series' books are not numbered correctly on Amazon. Two #5's and skips from 7 to 9. (I wonder about this, though. When I just went to the list of books in the series, there were now Tow 8's.) A bit unstable, it seems.
Actually, this seems to be a problem with all books I've read on my Kindle app that originate from Wolfpack. Amazon claims they publish exactly what was furnished to them, which I question because I've seen the same from Baen and other publishers. I even compared print versions to Kindle versions. There is a difference in quality.
Although I love the feel of a 'Hard' book, my eyes dictate I use a computer to read so that I can adjust the font size. I'm also afraid that it won't be long before paper becomes obsolete, except for niche publishing.
I bring this to your attention because it is a disservice to you and your readers.
Thank you for writing great tales.
