Items newly added in the ebook edition are marked with a paragraph sign ¶. Also marked is the Introduction to Terry Pratchett: Guilty of Literature, where the text published in the 2000 first edition of that book and the 2003 Up Through an Empty House of Stars has been replaced with the revision that appeared in the 2004 reissue of Guilty – expanded and titivated in accordance with Terry Pratchett's frequently stated principle "This needs to be ten per cent funnier."
