Welcome, Matthew,

Um, Nessus isn't now but *was* a coastal city. Can't recall off-hand who,
but one of the "wise" characters (one of the ones we can trust) tells Sev
that. Which goes along with my own theory that Nessus is a post-Alexandria.
(Oh, I know, I know, no one wants to hear this. But it's a lovely theory,
and I can go on and on and......on.)

Nice to see all you Brits aboard. So I'll throw in a Brit recommendation.
Those of you who have some interest in Dr. Talos's play, or just like the
theatrical atmosphere, would like Barry Unsworth's -Morality Play-, about a
troupe of players, set in 14th century England. The twists in it, and even
the general atmosphere, are quite Wolfean.
