When GW agrees to be GoH at a convention, I'm sure he *insists* on a chair
of massy gold <g>.


Thanks for reminding me of The Quincunx, a book I've had it in the back of
my mind to read for some time. You might like Peter Carey's newest book,
Jack Maggs, also Dickensian (Jack is the original for Magwich, and quite a
complex character, not as benign as old Magwich). It should be out in paper
reasonably soon if you can't find it at the library. And I'll take a crack
at Dead Can Dance!

FWIW, I too have had this thought, fleetingly.
