An Enraged Enormous Rat is something to see, all right, horrid red eyes
aglow, lice-ridden fur bristling, slimy fangs dripping...

But I digress. The Rat wrote:

aside, I still find it hard to understand how either of them could have
known many, many of the things in TBLS. Inventing "typical" dialogue is a
long way from the large stretches of material they had to learn from other
people, and I'm having trouble thinking of how they might have learned all
this stuff, and from whom. But what I really need to do is re-read the
Quartet through Horn's eyes, and see if it is really possible that he and
Nettle could have written it without "supernatural" help. Has anyone done

Yes, indeedy-doody. The four gospeleers of the NT come to mind instantly,
writing decades, and dubiously, after the death of their biographee. If you
throw Thomas in, five gospeleers.
