Selected Readings, No 65

December 14, 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 November-December Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz. Erin C. Blake, Kevin Cope, Bill Everdell, Dorothy Medlin, Timothy Viator, 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 a discussion of editorial policy (including a whole raft of caveats), please see the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page. Note that any links given in this issue 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 keep adding more back issues, but everything is still under construction -- we're covered with rue -- but we hope to get things working again gradually.
