Footnote 1 In the Del Rey edition of the book, S'lel's Tuenth is said to have flamed Larth, which is also what Dragonflight says happened to Larth.  However, the Corgi edition erroneously
states that M'ridin's Spakinth flamed Larth.  This is a double error, as Spakinth's rider is C'rob, not M'ridin.
