Rowena writes in answer to Little Alex saying that she had gotten Dorothy 
Parker on Quizilla:
though 
Lord Peter's lifestyle might not be too bad

Ah--that's Dorothy Sayers.  Dorothy Parker wrote ultra-cynical but extremely 
funny short stories, poems, etc.  I remember part of her poem on suicide: "Gas 
smells awful, nooses give, guns aren't lawful, you might as well live."

Personally, I think Little Alex would have been written by LMB--she sounds a 
lot like Miles in some of her posts!
