I just read the Lafferty story, "You Can't Go Back," that Adam pointed
out.  Even Wolfe doesn't seem to be up to the task of imitating
Lafferty--while "Junie Moon" works ok as a tribute, I suppose, it
really is rather sadly inferior to the source, and the points that
seem to attempt to catch Lafferty's style fail badly.  Too bad,
considering that some of Wolfe's past pastiches have been so enjoyable
("Suzanne Delage" and the Sherlock Holmes/Nero Wolfe stories).
