Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: British books in US

Some years ago, a lot of them, probably, I read a copy of Charles Williams' THE BIG BITE that had been reprinted by Pocket Books. They used the British plates, I guess, since "tire" was spelled "tyre." There were a few other little things like that. A bit distracting when reading a novel set in the Gulf Coast region. Great book, though, no matter how the words are spelled.
