    Thank you for the anthropological sketches, M. I was unaware of the Gallic proclivity for saying no; that no doubt is a mere prejudice brought back from the war by American GIs. ;-) And an unfair...

    The voice is great (if grating). In the beginning, when it seemed like the narrator was deceiving himself more, his voice reminded me a little of Dostoyevsky's Underground Man. As he rambled on,...

    Are you familiar, LS, with the famous Chinese classic Journey to the West? The reason I ask is that your hierarchy of sloth, passion, and wisdom reminds me of the three main characters, who are also...

    Thanks. You'd be shocked by how much is still retrievable using deep data hauls. The 1600s is good, but you could probably go back further and even find out about your biological father's line if you...

    It is great to see you starting a discussion thread again, Cacian. I remember how interesting your subjects always were. :)

    Sarcasm? Just kidding. As you can see, it's never been worse. That probably bodes ill for LitNet. It's helping my writing, though, since it makes for fewer distractions. Keep checking in is all I can...

    He'll love it. Or just show him the Hammer Studios version (more cleavage), then start him on Salinger. He'll move on to Roskalnikov in no time. :)
