	Sorry I was not more clear. I don't think Alice etal. really died, but
that their transition is parallel to Smoky's death. "heaven and hell" are
probably too loaded as terms to describe the two avenues.

	How could I forget it? I cannot find this book, and I've never read this
story. Finding JC stuff, outside the novels, is a labor of hercules. I
don't care to pay $100 for a copy. Maybe I'll get one on interlibrary loan
and PHOTOCOPY IT! Yeah. That's what I'll do. And then they can SUE me.
