Gerard Manley Hopkins, renowned poet (and was born after his uncle's death).
Oh. Well. Thank you very much, I'll not waste my time chasing that
particular red herring then. What a sweetie you are for pointing that out.
I can't help being a little giddy. I am actually getting some reading time,
and plowing happily through C.S. Friedman's _This Alien Shore_. It's not so
"romantic" as her Coldfire books, or _The Madness Season_, but I can hardly
put it down nonetheless. With the direct net surfing environment, I sort of
would almost compare it to some of Daniel [Keyes] Moran's books. Makes me
wonder how the Foundation books would fare today, and want to reread them, in
light of the, eh, how to put it? cyberzeitgeist?
Lizzie, list airhead....
