Selected Readings, No 63

October 16, 1998

"In this Work, when it shall be found that much is omitted, let it not be forgotten that much likewise is performed." -- Samuel Johnson

Selected Readings is compiled and edited by Kevin Berland, with the able assistance of the October Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz. Neil Guthrie, Dot Medlin, and A.J. Wright, not to mention the ever-present company of the Man in the Funny Hat, the Operator of the Moderately Elegant Machines, and the Secret Admirer... For an uncharacteristically lucid, witty, and well-thought-out discussion of editorial policy, please see the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page. Please note that any links given herewith were operational on the publication date; if you're visiting in the future (relatively speaking) we cannot ensure the links will still be up. As for C18-L's website and the Selected Readings back issues, we've added a few more back issues, but everything is still under construction -- we're still covered with rue -- but we hope to get things working again gradually. The green asterisk (*) indicates a book; the sign (§) indicates a special issue of a journal. Hey! why not volunteer to add a few entries to next month's issue?
