Powers:Coleridge:Milton: Faith...must be, if anything, a clear-eyed recognition of the patterns and tendencies, to be found in every piece of the world's fabric, which are the lineaments of God.
That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.
I'd traded my old copy of Kingsburg - and the recipient discovered that I'd only sent 5 white dice. I'm sad: I'd thought the copy was complete. Did anyone spring for the Fancy Dice packs and have an extra (original Kingsburg) white die lying about they'd be willing to sell me? I'd love to make the transaction whole.
