I'll have to check those references out. Does my memory about Rose/Marble's
decimal point ring any bells?

I would think so, given Wolfe's explicit statement that Pas did not know of
the inhumi.

Actually, we're preparing a series of internal ads along that exact idea.
The only one we've done so far is Delany, with PKD the obvious next; Wolfe
should be right after that, since I can't think of anyone else who has
received so much coverage in the magazine.

I love your "Autopsy of SF", by the way--that'll be in 110.
