Huh? No, I can't quite buy the DEEP ref. Wolfe's tone here is facetious;
Crowley is not facetious, though he does have a kind of learning-obsessed
sophomoric irony--and I hope not to be probed for the difference.

But you are right, right on for the OBW ref. to "TGaHM." More than you yet

Bwt, I am bowing out of the FAQ or non-FAQ. Unless, perhaps, as happened on
the usenet FAQ that I happily collaborated on (alt.mythology), we assign
different areas to different people and let them do them as they think

or interest, and when there was an overlap we were civilized about
compromise--but (a) we were initially quite selective about who we asked to
