Quite so. And you do recall correctly; I will be getting to the Gaderine
Computer scene eventually.

There is a *lot* of Christic imagery in "The Eyeflash Miracles," as I note
in my first posting. I am deliberately ignoring this, except occasionally
when it ties in with the Oz imagery. Wolfe manages to combine the two in
clever and complex ways, as you might expect. This doesn't mean I don't
welcome your comments; I do. And I would be glad to hear from anyone else
who wants to comment on Christic imagery in "The Eyeflash Miracles."
