Thanks for this. I've printed out a bibliography. And my apologies to Miker, for it seems (after reading an earlier black-kettle submission in the archive thread) I have indeed misinterpreted your take on at least this particular postmodernist. I've printed out a bibliography and look forward to digging into the Griffin series to start. Only other thing I can say is, "Man, was that three years ago?" What happens when you're having fun, eh?

Best, Kerry
