For those who do like CW, may I recommend (if you do not already know his work) Tim Powers? The closest living writer to "carrying on the Williams tradition," except that he is, in my humble, a better prose stylist than Williams ever=20 managed to be. Williams was a fine poet, but in the writing of fiction ... I wish I knew who first said it, but I've always agreed with this: "He wrote potboilers, but he=20 always boiled an honest pot."=20 Anywho, Powers is an astonishing writer ... --Blattid --
