Interesting that all the discussion is around where to highlight a word that no-one else had any problem identifying in the first place. I got as far as Ampthill but could get no further, never having come across the book in question although I vaguely remember hearing about it. Is it really that well-known?
Even had I known what to look for I doubt I'd have considered the preamble so I suppose I should be glad I was spared that angst.
I'm not impressed by the argument that "hey, it was Halloween so we should expect tricks". I've learnt to expect tricks every week with this puzzle, but they're usually pretty fair and well signaled for those paying attention.
