was Picasso) when justifying the "borrowing" of Xerox features for the
Macintosh O.S. He said "Good artists create. Great artists steal.">>

Just to give Jobs some of his own medicine, one would have to proclaim
that Bill Gates is a greater "artist" than he.

Since it is mandatory to make reference to something hardboiled, let me
partly amend the information about the "Blue Murder" series. While the
earlier volumes were published by Simon & Schuster, my copy of Kenneth
Fearing's _The Big Clock_ is published by Xanadu.

Finally, who was Paul Buck? Xanadu apparently republished his novel _The
Honeymoon Killers_, an intriguing title.
