"The signs of the times are missing apostrophes."
Sometimes, the world needs a proofreader.
Have you ever been driving down the road and seen a sign that is... not... quite... right? And you wanted to pull over and whip out a magic marker and correct the sign (for science, or posterity, or just for your own piece of mind).
The world needed a hero, but how would an editor with no off-switch
answer the call? For Portsmouth author Jeff Deck, the writing was literally on the wall:
“NO TRESSPASSING.” In that moment, his greater purpose became clear.
Dark hordes of typos had descended upon civilization… and only he could
wield the marker to defeat them.
