Hey, how hard should I try to track down "Try and Kill It."  Nov. 96
Asimov's, someone recently compared this to "The Ziggurat*" and
claimed it was Wolfe in Faulkner territory in conversation; a quick
net search reveals it was preliminary Nebula balloted that year, but
wasn't in _Strange Travelers_ or reprinted elsewhere.  Anyone on the
list read it and think it was top-flight Wolfe?

The story "Copperhead" at sfsite is mildly interesting, but mostly
strikes me as the kind of thing we usually get from Wolfe when he dips
below novelette length.  It might spark a few more Wolfe-misogyny

* which for me says "high quality work indeed," though as we've seen YMMV.
