After confirming that author CharlesPellegrino was indeed deceived by one of his sources, Henry Holt announcedMonday afternoon that it will correct all future editions of the Last Trainfrom Hiroshima.The deception, first brought to light in the Sunday New York Times, involvedclaims by Joseph Fucco that he was a last minute substitute for flight engineerJames R. Corliss aboard one of the photographic planes, Necessary Evil, thatescorted the Enola Gay.

To make the corrections, Holtsaid Pellegrino is interviewing the family of Corliss and surviving service menfrom the mission. When those interviews are completed, Holt will release alist of corrections. All future editions--hardcover, paperback orelectronic--will include the corrections and an author's note explaining whathas occurred. References to Fucco will be eliminated. There are no plans torecall the book; Holt has shipped about 18,000 copies. The total changes willamount to less than five pages of text and one illustration, said Holtpresident Steve Rubin.
