      Which is to correct not Sutton, but HarperCollins. Excellent article, by

      Somehow, I figured Diana Wynn Jones would have more sense than to write a new Narnia. After all, anyone who could come up with *The Tough Guide to Fantasyland* . . . I'd love to read the letter of refusal she must have sent HarperCollins! Mine would have to have been written on asbestos-laced paper. ---djb.
