Spangaloo's roster of authors includes the company's founder James Blanchett, writing as James Bryron Love, and the incredibly prolific Therese A Kraemer. Every one of the Spangaloo books I looked inside, including those in which an editor was credited, were riddled with errors. There appears to be no quality control whatsoever. The covers are hilariously awful - my favourite is that of Defiant Heart, a novel set in the early nineteenth century ("it was the year eighteen hundred and eleven") which depicts the hero in modern dress.Editing with Spangaloo
