    ... Mervyn Peak -- a short story on a similar theme.

    Perhaps a more palatable liqueur than the moonshine of his admittedly overwrought, un-completed trilogy.

    It's ... ridiculous to expect the market to police itself as it would be to expect a baserunner to walk off the field if no one is calling outs.

      M.P. was an illustrator, but he also wrote a fair number of books -- often with a satirical edge towards religion, which might seem strange, considering he was a solid Christian.

      His beliefs were more of the "God knows, I'm only human!" type.
