I seem to recall some sort of blood-sucking misfortune having befallen
Teasel, which Dr. Crane dismissed as some sort of bat bite.
Unfortunately I don't have my copy of "Nightside" - I just finished

find the first one missing. Damn.

I certainly hope so. Do you suppose the dark, flitting thing that Horn
saw at the end of "Exodus" could be Oreb?
