I have no idea what could have caused this. Here are some examples, copy and pasted from Calibre:

“Do you think it was an accident? A fire or a power outag, be?”

Although I have "bought" dozens and dozens of Amazon freebies, these are the first that I actually *read* so I have no idea if it happens frequently with Amazon books converted with Calibre.

I don't see those errors in the Omnibus edition. Take a look at the Amazon versions and see if you see the errors there. Maybe they were cleaned up for the Omnibus version after these errors were pointed out.
