So I'm doing it myself. And this takes forever. And because it takes forever I can't do it all at once, or the new book I'm supposed to be writing will never get finished. I proofread the eBooks in the evenings, after my writing hours.
Not long ago, I did complete the review of Knaves’ Wager. Eagle-eyed readers will notice that spelling has been Americanized (the attempt at British spelling was a policy of my first, hardcover, publisher), some less-than-felicitous word choices have been corrected, and the scene breaks have been returned. The OCR errors have all, I trust, been fixed. Since nobody's perfect, readers may still find an error here and there, but only the normal amount.
What they will not find is a new version of the book. Even if I had the inclination to go back and rewrite a book I wrote several hundred years ago, I don't have time. I was proud of what I wrote then; it's impossible to write the same kind of book now that I wrote at a different stage of my life; and I think most readers would rather have the original story.
*Had it been possible to transfer the originals to my hard drive, we wouldn't have had this problem in the first place.
