    I’m always happy to see authors held accountable for what they do, just like anyone else. Thanks for that WorldCon link, I hadn’t heard the details on that one yet.

    And a list of the top 100 fantasy books? You know I now have to see how many I’ve read…

    Wow! 700,000 copies released of a nonfiction book is pretty amazing! I wonder how much he was paid? Can you imagine a relative hiding information for so long, then finding it? I wonder how the family feels? I’m pretty sure it would be cool to be stuck in a library all night because they’ve really changed by adding couches and kitchens. I could eat my cheeseburgers and have the run of all kinds of books. Love reading your trivia! Hugs…RO

      Re the Wolff book, I imagine the publishers had to rush into a second printing to manage it. As for the Hamilton descendants, if it were me, I’d be delighted to have the two paragraphs deciphered, as it were. I doubt anyone in this century would be all that bothered to find that the man was passionately attracted to his intended bride!
