You think that's his masterpiece? I liked it, but I'm reading BRIARPATCH right now, and I think it's far better. I can back myself up and make a cheap appeal to authority by saying that Roger L. Simon, in that PDF I mentioned, said THE FOOLS IN TOWN was a warm-up for BRIARPATCH and not as good. If you've read BRIARPATCH, how would you compare them?
