      I agree. Steinbeck's story cycle was so nihilistic, & the last story had no
      relation to the others,
      even after I read it three or four times. Was I missing something, fellow
      Mythies? Just a bit
      off topic, but still LIT.

      Oh, my bro & I grew up with Struwwelpeter, but it fit right in with the Poe &
      Lovecraft he was
      feeding me when I was all of 8 years. Not traumatized by that, more by nuclear
      war threats.
