Having just gotten in to Willeford last year, the 11 months left before July 2003 will be (maybe) just enough time for me to find his remaining books before the discussion. In two of the stories from THE MACHINE ON WARD ELEVEN, I found some overt clues to a major theme appearing in all of the other books I read so far (COCKFIGHTER, BURNT ORANGE, the Mosely series, & SHARK-INFESTED CUSTARD). I hope to have a lucid argument developed by July 2003. Willeford is easily my favourite writer.
