I've had success writing private letters to the author c/o the publisher in
these cases.  It might not work with a Big Name Author, but a new novelist
will probably be glad to hear from an actual reader who wasn't paid to read
the book.

I am probably the only other person on Earth who knows *why* Larry Niven
changed the name of a gas-giant planet in the Known Space series from
Binary to Primary.
