gr8 story, but yeah - 'a matter of urgency'? I love the conversations between Al and Janine/Githros, and you surpassed yourself on this one with dialog. <br><br>PS A challenge! See if you can plug your own work with every post. Advance interest in Prufock's story has definitely been generated.

<br>Hey, you try coming up with a "Matter" or "Matters" title and tying it into the story somehow. As I said in another post, 'urgency' refers to the speed spell and Janine and Billy in peril and ... not buying, it, huh? Rassumfrassumarglegrmph.<br><br>

Will this be noticed floating down here???<br><br>I recently read Black Easter by James Blish and was instantly reminded of this series. Robert, have you read it? It too is a story of modern magic, mostly concerning the control or lack thereof of demons and other religious entities. And I'd also recommend it to Nate. It'd be sure to satisfy your appetite for the senses being included. Here everything is described in minute details down to smells and the arrangement of every last thing in a room. But it isn't mundane, these are no ordinary things being described but objects of magic and a bunch of interesting and intellegent but flawed characters. The sequel 'The day after judgement' is also great but moves away from the slow desriptive build up to more of a typical pulp-type scenario following from a large magic experiment gone wrong, or at least, too right.<br><br>That's it, just a thought.
