The big news from
this very small part of the world is all about Mathurin.
Not only has Mathurin been given the title Mathurin,
which in and of itself is very big news, but he has now
found his way downstairs and is with The Editor. And
it's a tense sort of excitement for your writer of pulp
whose spelling falls into the category The Grauniad. A
Manchester newspaper the more proficient speller will
refer to as The Guardian.
cousin who went by the name Derailment, if anyone likes to
remember, when launched into the ether had a few spelling
mistakes. The one I really enjoyed was "At his fist sighting
of sheep." And with many thanks to the Friend Who Lives Too
Far Away, "Fist Sightings of sheep" interesting though they
might sound, will soon no longer be a part of Book Three of
The Rabbit of Usk. However, a "Fist Sighting of Sheep" does
seem to demand a definition all to itself. Several chapters,
possibly in Book Ten.
