For those who were members of TARS, I wrote an article on this topic in 2007. These pages appeared in the 1st, 2nd and I think 3rd impressions. They disappeared thereafter.
This was all tied up with AR wanting readers to buy books in chronological order, an idea that was firmly sat on by Cape.
SD was a mess from the date point of view, I suspect AR lost track of the dates through his constant redrafts and pressure to complete in time for the novel to be published by Christmas. There were also many references to PD although the novel was published after SD.
Perhaps, if anyone is interested, I could republish the article on ATR. Although out of courtesy I would want to let TARS/MM know that I was so doing.
