These days I hold my breath and hope that more typos aren't added.
<cue: ranting about omnibus of Vance's PLANET OF ADVENTURE> Your
mention of it makes me think fleetingly of submitting a list of clear
typos (nevermind those two stealthies), but nah, that would only make
me more crazy.


Interesting point, re: the unambiguous/beat-reader-over-head with
Christianity mode of C.S. Lewis.  Can we take this a little further?
My personal sense of Cordwainer Smith is that his work is somewhat
closer to the mode of Lewis than the mode of Wolfe (I readily admit I
prefer Smith over Lewis).  Would you agree?  (How about you, alga?)
Not to denigrate any of these authors, just arranging them in a
spectrum.  (The Chesterton of THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY to my mind is
definitely at the Wolfe end of the spectrum.)
