You haven't yet.  The Amazon search copy (even the one
linked from the hardback edition) has the page numbers
from the mass market paperback.

I wasn't trying to scare anyone away from disagreeing with
him.  I did say points of fact, by which I meant to exclude
interpretations.  There are at least two or three aspects of
the interpretation of Peace that I think Roy is wrong about
(and several others that we've argued about that I've since
come around to his side on).   Also, you're taking my post
more personally than I intended it.  My intention was to
compliment Roy on his remarkable ability you note above, and
not to make a dig at you.  My apologies if you interpreted it otherwise.
