Publication Date confirmed for Scott Lynch’s THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES


Recommended Posts


It's a pet peeve.

Which I can understand... to an extent. But everyone makes mistakes and it seems a bit mean and insensitive to pull people on them.

English is my first language, and as I've stated, I wrote my previous post in a rush, but who is to say it is all of the other posters first language on here? It's the second time someone on this forum has made a point of pulling me on small, insignificant mistake. And to be honest, I think it is unnecessary and disheartening and makes you feel small as a person just because it is a pet hate of another person. It's like me walking up to someone I've never met and laughing at them because they're fat or unattractive.

So congratulations, you have a better grasp of the English language.

In your first sentence, the close quotes should be outside the punctuation.


iPhone will not let me do that. It keeps adding a new period.

Mr. Abercrombie,

I submit to your superior knowledge of the English language. My wife, who's the real grammer nazi in my family, has previously explained the proper use of "a" versus "an".

Also, scot, I need to point out that it should surely be 'a "ly"' rather than 'an "ly"'. It's a pet peeve of mine.

Joe, you should really capitalize Scot as a proper noun...

It is not a pet peeve a mine, I just thought that I would throw my metaphorical penis in the English dick waving contest... :laugh:
