    1. Paul, I have turned down some very kind invitations from publishers and am going to do my own small reprint press, I think--unless I chicken out! Hadn't thought of a hardcover... Was thinking of ebook plus paperback. But maybe!

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
