On the contents page on page 8 of the Investigator's Handbook, 'The Dunwich Horror' is spelt 'The Dunwitch Horror.'

On page 45, in the entry on Intelligence, using INT as the Idea roll is mentioned twice.

And the continued on page 44 note at the end of the page should be to page 48. And that entry for Luck is awfully short. Not sure if there's missing text here.

Page 47, the second sentence of the first paragraph should be reworded, it's not too clear. There's also an extra apostrophe in that sentence.

In the third from the last paragraph, "specialism" should be "specialty".

Page 51, there's an errant line break in the italicized text for Step Four: Create A Backstory.

Investigator's Handbook: In the occupations section the entries for Smuggler (p.70), Pharmacist (p.86) and Zookeeper (p.92) have their credit rating range expressed as a class (e.g. "Lower Middle to Upper Middle class") rather than the numbers used for all other professions.

Investigators handbook: Page 11 image appears to be reversed ('Newport' poster text is backwards). Is this intentional?

Investigator's Handbook p. 69: "[Classic]" after Gangster's Moll shouldn't be bolded.

Investigator's Handbook, Occupations chapter (and probably elsewhere): "x" is being used for "×".

Also, some entries are using hyphens in the Credir Rating ranges rather than en dashes.
