Our hero has had a word or two with your writer of pulp.
He's very anxious to avoid the error I drew into several
of his characters in the first version of Vestry of
Monnow. This time round he seems to remember the story
better than I do, which is a little creepy, but it does
serve as a reminder to regularly throw everything away
and then start again. It's refreshing and in a sense
like going to the trash collection day that's all about
keeping the county clean by providing residents an
opportunity to get rid of stuff rather than tossing it on
the side of the road when no one's looking, or just leaving
it in the barn for another ten years on the understanding
that because it looks useful it might be useful for
something one day. Some of us are very prone to that. I
think we're called "Hoarders."
