Indexer Notes

Credits printed on this sequence include a box that offers "Special Thanks to Barb Schulz, Christi Atkinson, and Karen Platt." A note by editor Julie Rottenberg on the letters page of the original issue states, in part, "I'd also like to take this opportunity to mention Peter's assistants, who have made a huge contribution to the book from the very beginning of the series without ever having been mentioned. So here's a very belated but heartfelt thanks to Barb Schulz, Christi Atkinson, and Karen Platt."
