	Yes, only Father's Day.  "Seven American Nights" is definitely the way
to go for Easter--it has an Easter procession, of course, but I think the theme
is definitely resurrection (whether a diabolic parody of resurrection or the
real thing is another matter...)  Anyway, it's an egg story, hence Easter.

	Detective of Dreams was only suggested because it does end with
Communion, after all.

	Hmmm...  I think if it wasn't already taken (holiday, not story) that
"Sillhoutte" is sufficiently creepy for Halloween (PEACE would also do--when my
mother read it, I told her a very important thing was to figure out what genre
it was...  A long time later, she said "OH!  It's a ghost story.")
