Well, from what I saw the controversy was more over some of the edits
to the Hub stories than anything else.  I'm not certain the edits were
totally unreasonable - there was unedited source available available
in Webscriptions.  Eric claims - and I will agree - that James did not
have an overarching story-line for the Hub stories, and that there
were a couple of places where he wrote himself into a corner and
couldn't write himself out of it.
