The unusually-gracious-of-late William Ansley having written:

<Wow, Robert! This is most impressive. Wolfe mentioned godlings in OBW and I
had totally forgotten it until you mentioned it. Could you give the page
number for this passage, please?>

p. 157, paragraph 6.

<Now I don't buy the Pig-Tartaros or Pig-Babbie connection and I don't
think Pig killed Silk, but I am right with you on "Pig is a godling.">

<Hey guys! If Robert and I can agree on something, how can anyone else doubt

So maybe pigs do sometimes fly, eh, William? Now if I can just get you to
consider the notion that all godlings are under the control of Mainstream,
and ask you why you think Wolfe might have chosen to make Pig a godling as
opposed to someone, say, like Auk (although the two do bear a fair amount of
similarity), then perhaps we can get away from the usual applied sarcasm and
have a genuine discussion.
