      Doug will be the guest of honor at Mythcon/Bree Moot this summer in Milwaukee.
      He'll be showing slides that I think were originally compiled in connection with
      doing the book, which I gather would be much longer, well, the annotations would
      be more extensive, were it being done today. Too bad if you can't make it.
      But, in case Doug is NOT on this list, may I forward your note to him?
