I routinely receive mail for my authors which I then forward. I never give out their address.
Most authors/editors/publishers appreciate polite corrections - when backed up with documentation. Some may accept your 'facts' while others may not be so receptive. This could be because they have studied the original source documents (as opposed to somebody else's book) and took a different interpretation of the data. Whatever the case go ahead and write to the publisher.
