I learned of it because DD-B lives in my basement.

Well, our basement.  I just couldn't resist that formulation.

Lucky person.  I had to read them one by one by one as they were
finished.  Only in retrospect could I wallow, and in rereading, which
is a lot of fun but not the same as discovery.

I knew Steve before he had written any books, but I must admit it
was certainly great fun once he started.

(Hello, Thomas!  I just recently played that tape of THE LADY'S NOT
FOR BURNING you found me for a friend.  Thank you again.)
