One thing that makes the Anne Perry books a challenge are all the contractions used to imitate the various London accents. Some of the characters seem to only use about half the available syllables! I run two separate spell checks and have a custom dictionary in Word just for those books. I'm reading and correcting Hyde Park Headsman, it won't take long but Christmas preparations are keeping me very busy. I've got Traitor's Gate and will do it after the Hyde Park Headsman. If validating Pentecost Alley or the other recent Anne Perry submissions is more tedious than fun, I'll tackle them. Although, I probably wouldn't be able to get to it until the week between Christmas and New Years.
