Cannon Companion
Version 3.0
Date: 12/22/2004

Most changes are reflected in the third corrected printing of Cannon Companion (the first printing by FanPro LLC). To determine which printing you have, consult the notation on p. 5 in the second column after the credits. No indication means first printing. The notation in [brackets] after each entry indicates on which print run the correction was made. An entry with no printing in brackets means that the correction does not appear in any printings.

Various minor changes (typos, incorrect p. references, layout errors) have also been made, but these are not noted here.
