The short answer is "no." My dissertation and the book that resulted  
after most of the "dissertationese" was removed focus on a reading of  
the "canonical form" (so to speak) of Genesis 12-36. I addressed the  
tiqqune soferim issue only with specific regard to Genesis 18:22. As  
such, my book doesn't really fit on your bibliographic list, as kind  
as it was of you to include it. :-)
