I'd love to be able to answer that question, but my copy of B.R. is approximately 130 miles away and is going to remain so until December, and my eyes can't resolve the characters in the print at that distance. If only Penguin had used a bigger typeface...
You're probably right. I expect I made a typo and no-one noticed. Apart form you, that is.

Yes, you're right and I think the name was chosen originally as a reference to Colley Cibber, who was a dreadful poet laureate.

Possibly, also it in reference to "Lolly Lud", the made up name of the real life journalist who played the game Hale has to play in real life for a British Newspaper in the late 20s.
