Part of it may be the timing between manuscript receipt and publication. There are times where the book is advertised and scheduled for release in, say, 3 months, and the manuscript isn't even halfway done (I've talked to several authors where this was the case). Not that it's an excuse, but it's certainly a reason. Not enough time, not enough money to hire more people to do the work, etc. The usual stuff.

SB: I've even caught several glaring *spelling* errors in Gastronomica, so no one's immune!
