Paul, thanks for the link.

Question: one of your sidebar categories is "They Shall Have Stars." Is that a reference to the James Blish novel of the same name? Or (more likely) to the line in the Dylan Thomas poem "And Death Shall Have No Dominion," which is, of course, where Blish got his title?

Elisson, you're welcome!

A lot of the category headings over on my sidebar are Blish references. "Voices over the Message Tree" alludes to the "message tree" on the planet Lithia in A Case of Conscience. "Common Time" is a reference to Blish's short story of the same name. "They Shall Have Stars" (which, as you mention, Blish borrowed from Dylan Thomas) comes from the title of one volume of Blish's Cities in Flight tetralogy.

And of course the name of my blog itself, "Let the Finder Beware," was originally the title of an earlier and shorter version of Blish's parapsychology thriller, Jack of Eagles.
