"What is the pleasure of the antiqued surface? It does insist, does it not? along with our most avant-garde fictioneers, on the word on the page. Is it that? If so, how easily we enter that world so wobbling and indecisive, how quickly even that insistence (let every man spel for himself!) evaporates and the island itself, 'We spent 4 Dais beeting doun to it, ' comes clear, present and dangerous." --George Chambers, author of Null Set and Other Stories
