The end result could conceivably include choking, yes.

It's just obvious.
As for the police reports, there's so few surviving that we tend to put too much weight on what they have to offer and why. For instance, most of us rebel against the notion of a 'canonical five'. But why does this canon exist? Because of Macnaghten and Bond. And because during the information starved 20th century, these were considered groundbreaking new finds and the community at that time vested them with more relevance than perhaps they deserved.
I really, REALLY like this kind of analysis.

Hello, Maria, it's great to see you been on the scene again. It's been far too long! I look forward to hearing your feedback on my book.

Yours truly,

As Tom controls the distribution of his book, he should have a degree of knowledge on who has a copy, however a precise knowledge? I'm not so sure as Phil states. Nor should it matter really. A book is to be read.

Some shall read the book for its content, others shall tackle it with the mind of picking its bones for errors as if collecting trophies. Both are beneficial for the author.

There are errors in Stewart Evans work (which he graciously acknowledges), errors in Rumbelow, errors in Fido, Begg, Sugden, Brown, Bennett, Clack, Carter, Bell, Marriott, yes, even Ed Stow has made the odd balls up.

I know, shocking ain't it?
