Well, I actually once met Jeremy Butler and even (if memory serves) had
lunch with him and several others at a Midwest MLA meeting.
But all this begins to sound like the recent discussion on PYNCHON-L over
whether Thomas Pynchon really exists!
So, Jeremy, does this mean that *you* are Thomas Pynchon?
Actually, with all due respect to Freelancr, I think this may demonstrate
that we are *all* authorial constructs who occupy author-functions on
the net.  Or--if a message is sent on e-mail and no one responds, did a
tree fall in the forest?
