Rotten Branch on the Family Tree
[Excerpted from a longer e-mail.]
...I noticed that your brother doesn't seem to have actually read any of your books. If he had, he'd know how Fire and Rain ends. So how can he claim that "those marvellous tomes," your Northwest novels, "scare him to death" if he hasn't actually read them?
