Topic: Blood Music - question about the cell cycle/book editions

Dear Greg,
I'm trying to figure out what's with the chapters in the edition of the book that I have, the cell cycle titles do not match the information I found about mitosis.
My edition of the book is "Arrow books limited" 1988 and it has: interphase prophase metaphase methapase(doubled) anaphase interphase . I don't have any other copies of the book, apart from google books comparison, but I don't know, was that on purpose? or the publisher was poor.
Should it be the traditional way? metaphase, anaphase, telophase and interphase?

Confused,
Aleksandra

The sequence is wonky in these editions. You've got it right.

Wonky. Isn't that a neat word some of us seem to have appropriated from the Britons?

Likely.
