Oh no, I have offended contributors to the book by not knowing
their work. Oh no, oh me, oh my. What am I to do. I'm sure this
problem will be rectified by the authors themselves - who are in
this chat group - and they will come forward to chastise me for
not knowing who they are. To which I will reply: do you know my
work? Have you read anything I have written? I assume you are
shaking your heads "no." Well, then, we are equal in being
oblivious to each other. Not to worry. All will be revealed over
