Page 193 in a Bantam paperback.  Hey, that =is= spooky!

The full name on that page is "Evan S. Barnable": remind me, was his dad
named Evan?  Do we have evidence that his dad called him Smoky, and that
Smoky is what the "S" stands for; or is Smoky just his hippie handle?
(When I think of his family I just remember his five uncles and the way he
and his dad would move from one uncle's house to the other . . . states
beginning with the letter I, that whole thing.)
