The howler was regarding Dizzed to a Million. (I have no idea what the title means.)
HDAS listed the author as J. Harris. I originally took that to mean Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus stories, not an unreasonable assumption given the subject. The giveaway, though, was the 1919 publication date, which is over a decade after J. C. Harris’s death. I should have caught that. (Maybe when I wrote the original version I reckoned it was a posthumous publication, but I really don’t remember what I was thinking.)
I don’t remember what prompted me to check this time (probably looking to see if Dizzed, which is how HDAS recorded it, was the complete title). I couldn’t find anything resembling that in any of J. C. Harris’s bibliography, so I widened the search parameters and found references to Jerome Harris’s 1919 Dizzed to a Million in some history publications about the field artillery in WWI. I didn’t find the book itself (if it is even actually a book and not a short story or pamphlet), only references to it.
