  1. Gentle Readers and/or Listeners,

    “It had been a dark and stormy night, with far too little sleep. I awoke in a cold sweat at 5:13 AM, with the name “Bernard Baily” screaming into my still-clearing mind from the depths of my unconscious. Of course he was the creator of Hourman! How could I have been so blind that I couldn’t see it!”

    (Excerpt from “This Artist for Hire”, an unpublished novel by Graham Greene)

    Not really,
    ps) I’d also like to apologize to Jersey City, New Jersey: I was only kidding! You have a lovely community, but a cheap joke beckoned, and I couldn’t resist! rrr
