Sorry. On another list I'm dealing with a serious anti-Catholic
who seems to think that Jack Chick tracts are Revealed Truth. A
bit of the defensiveness seems to have slipped across to here.

Yeah. And one of the things I've been thinking, but need to 
reread it first, is that one-of-the-many-things-Long-Sun-is,
is a story of the redemption of Typhon/Pas. Or maybe not...

I suspect he'd get very upset if you called him wise. 8*)

Might, heck. If God can make use of scum like me and, doubtless,
Gene Wolfe, he can make use of somebody like Typhon. (Or, as Eru
says to Melkor, "this, too, shall result in the greater glory of
my work." Or something like that. I hate having a lousy memory 
for quotations...)
