RARA-AVIS: A modest proposal [God is a Scam]

M-T (matrxtech@sprintmail.com)
Mon, 29 Mar 1999 00:38:59 -0500 Given the vitriolic opinion expressed by one poster regarding this first
novel, I propose that we postpone discussions until the book is out;
perhaps we should include it on our reading list. The exercise of
discussing a first book by a hardboiled author would be an interesting
change of pace, and possibly of point-of-view, in our ongoing survey of
the literature. We should not pass up this golden opportunity to make
complete fools of ourselves.

The situation of a first-time author is perilous enough without advance
negative publicity. This is not an attempt to silence anybody but simply
a request that we give raravians a chance to judge the book on its own
merits, without preconceptions.
