I checked, and there is no "Earlier" used like that in the English version.

Neither "!!" nor "!!!" are seen as very correct in English (though they get used in comics a lot). I'm kind of surprised it's in there. I will check to see if it was on purpose.

[Edit: It wasn't.]

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Warbreaker - page 222 - first full paragraph - second sentence
"prolifigate" should be "profligate"
If I had any clue, would I be here?

i don't know if this was fixed in a later draft of the book (i have a really early version) but in well of ascension it says that clubs is a seeker and that he can't sense the pulsing. i don't have my book with me now so i don't know the page or paragraph

That's been fixed in the paperback.  Thanks!

Major inconsistency in the Mistborn trilogy regarding Steel inquisitors and their spikes.

In Mistborn: The Final Empire Marsh says that all Steel Inquisitors have the same 11 spikes.
Quote from: Mistborn: The Final Empire, page 637
"Two in the head, eight in the chest, one in the back to seal them together"
Later on, during the opening scenes of Mistborn: The Hero of Ages, Vin and Elend are examining the body of a Steel Inquisitor they have just killed and they discover an extra tenth spike.
Quote from: Mistborn: The Hero of Ages, page 45
She nodded, "That makes ten spikes. Two through the eyes and one through the shoulders: all steel. Six through the ribs: two steel, four bronze. Now this, a pewter one."

it is not an inconsistency.  if u read the rest of the book u will find out more about the art of hemalurgy and that the number of spikes is not at all confined to the basic eleven.  at the end of the book i believe marsh has around twenty.

No, Moder is saying that there are less spikes in the Inquisitor in the third book. It's possible that it's a mistake. Perhaps Ruin decided that some of the spikes that TLR was using were not useful, so he directed the old inquisitors to use a different set on new recruits.

I figure that I might as well put it here, but I found this on Mistborn 2 Ch. 20 annotations

Breeze has made a life and a reputation out of hiding his feelings behind his attitude. I likes looking like a scoundrel—not only does it let him get away with a lot of random things, but it also keeps people from poking too far into his past.

It should be either 'he likes' or 'I like making him look' or something else.

The Gathering Storm

Page 405, paragraph 7.

"What? If course I need you, Thom!" should be Of course.

The Gather Storm

Last page: 754

"Then he rested his elbows on his knees and his head on his hands  stairing at the diminutive statue of the man with the globe."

If somebody has access to Mistborn 2, there is a chapter where Vin thinks about the mist spirit, and Alendi's logbook in the beginning of the next chapter mentions "spirits" or "creatures" (plural). I won't have access to the books for a little while, but if somebody wants to go through those excerpts of Alendi's logbook, find the one that refers to "spirits" and check the previous 1-2 chapters to make sure I am right, it would probably be appreciated.

In the first draft there was more than one spirit, so that is probably a leftover mistake.

What, was Ruin able to manifest a black mist spirit?  We know he found a black Well.
