Thinking on it further, I have a question I'd dearly like to ask Lois,
if she was still on the list these days.  (Although certainly her
finishing up a book is Very Important and Takes Precedence!)  Given
that she has said she based Leo Graf to some extent on her father,
IIRC, I wonder if her father liked Kipling.  If anyone gets a chance
to ask her, let me know?
