Tony Ellis,

Re: the five stage hero of the brown book.

The shortest answer is:
 1. Birth
 2. Initiation
 3. Reign
 4. Repose
 5. Death

The medium answer is: read my essay ("A Closer Look at the Brown
Book") on the subject in "The New York Review of Science Fiction No.
54," 2-93.

The full experience is: read THE WHITE GODDESS by Robert Graves, then
re-read all the brown book stories, and finally, if you simply must,
read my essay.
