His approach is a slow and methodical, yet entertaining view on the games he plays. Any thoughts on how to proceed? Jefe , 5 Jan CST. Any reason not to unprotect the help pages that are protected not many are? Seems like anybody who wants to update and improve those pages should have the chance. I'm baffled. I've done everything that people have suggested about clearing out the Notes in the individual Lovejoy novels by Jonathan Gash.
I've fixed it so that if you go to the "Jonathan Gash Summary Bibliography" you'll see a "Fiction Series" called "Lovejoy" with 6 or 7 books listed. And here you see, under Notes, the long thing I wrote a couple of days ago that reads: "This series concerns an unscrupulous antiques dealer named Lovejoy who leads a shady and somewhat marginal existence in spite of his preternatural gift of being able to infallibly determine whether any work of art or antique is genuine or not. Because, in theory, we've redone it so that if you click on any one of the books initially listed and go to, say: "Bibliography: The Judas Pair" you'll see, beside Note: "The Lovejoy series link explains why this book, and others in the series, is considered speculative fiction.
For this talent he is called, both by himself and many of the other characters in the books, a "divvie", slang for diviner. Aside from this single paranormal element, however, the books are straightforward mystery thrillers, not SF. The two times I've purged it, all my edits have been approved. Can anyone correct this, or just explain to me what I have to do in order to fix it myself? Is this what I should get? How should books that contain only a single short story modelled? As novels? It seems weird, but that'd be my guess. Also, what about boxed sets? I saw some discussion on one of the biblio pages, but no conclusion was made.
Should I just enter them as separate pubs and include a note about slipcasing? Jefe , 6 Jan CST. Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. Le Guin. Can we declare them a bit better? I've added a few Moorcocks tonight, more tomorrow if they're useful. Or ask me for help on some subjects - I'm just picking a shelf-full of books at random sometimes, if you need a concentrated effort just say so. The worst I can say is "Who?
There have been numerous questions and confusion about display listings and editing behavior that stems from publications that have the wrong type collections that are marked as novels, etc. I wrote some scripts that located pubs that were marked wrong and found that there were about of them. Rather than set up a page of targets to edit which would take weeks to go through , I have done a wholesale update of the database, converting these types. The types that were changed were in this order :. The change will have no effect on the display of bibliographies as no title types were touched.
Alvonruff , 6 Jan CST. This was at my suggestion, because the app had integrated the cover art title into the field at the top for artist, on the parent title, so there was no need ever to enter something down in the contents section. I'm now wondering if there is a reason to bring it back, for Ace doubles. The difficulty with cover art is just the same as with the authors; entering two artists makes it look as if they collaborated on the artwork.
Al, would that cause display problems? For the one I've been working on, for example, "The Silent Invaders" cover is by Emsh, but the flip side, "Battle on Venus", is unsigned. What do you think -- is this the right approach? A rudimentary tool for diffing publications is now online. It is available in the navbar whenever you're viewing a title, under the link "Diff Publications".
You will be presented with a checklist of publications. You may select 2 pubs, and after submitting, it will display the differences in the content between the two pubs. There are 5 or 6 Ferron stories, all of which are stand-alone Analog stories. They were, however, conceived of, and written as, part of a structured outline in which the Time Scanner itself was discovered, then used in various ways. I was wondering, however, if it were worthwhile going into this list of stories and numbering them as a Series? They're all stand-alones, but most of them clearly build upon the background and events detailed in the earlier stories.
Also, is there a place where I can stick in the info that "Chap Foey Rider" is an anagram of my name? The first story started out as a joke letter that I wrote to Ben Bova -- he told me to turn it into a series Rudam submitted an update that led to an interesting question regarding a Tiptree collection.
That publication lists the stories as being "by Raccoona Sheldon". I have a copy; mine looks like a Tiptree collection, but Sheldon is mentioned in a footnote on the table of contents saying that asterisked stories were originally published under that name. I don't think this count as a publication under that name for this book, does it? What about country songs that are clearly science fiction? There were two major hits in the s by the one-time country superstar Randy Travis. Here are the lyrics:. There may not be a Superbowl in , Cars and trains and video games will all be history, The world just keeps on changing, things come and then they go, Nothing lasts forever except one thing I know,.
There'll always be a honky tonk, With a jukebox in the corner, And someone crying in their beer, And one old hanger-oner, And a lady looking lonely, From a losing love affair,. There may be factories on the moon and farming out in space, It seems there's nothing here on earth, That something won't replace, But as long as there's a broken heart there'll be a place to go, Where good ole boys meet good ole girls, And the wine and music flow,.
Operator please connect me with Nineteen-Eighty Two. I need to make apologies for what I didn't do. I sure do need to tell her that I thought the whole thing through. And now it's clear that she is what - I should have held onto. They say hindsight's but I'm nearly goin' blind. From starin' at her photograph and wishing she was mine.
It's that same old lost love story - it's sad but it's true. There was a time when she was mine in Nineteen-Eighty-Two. Postman can you sell me - a special kind of stamp. One to send a letter from this crazy lonely man. Back into the wasted years of my living past. I need to tell her, now I know - how long my love will last.
I know ISFDB has logic that makes if rather hard to set up authors that have different capitalization than the canonical name. Any thoughts? One "solution" that does seem to work is that I changed the name to Gerard, space, space, Klein for the English translations. The downside of that is things like title and publication searches for Gerard space Klein will not find the space, space versions of the name meaning the only way to get to the English translations by author name is via the author's bibliography.
I'm starting to put in the rest of the Lovejoy books in order of publication, starting out with the most basic info. But I'd sure like to be able to put in the fact that each book is 8 in the series and so forth. I guess it's easy enough to do if you're a Moderator and can approve your own edit as you do it.
But I have to first do the New Novel edit, then wait for a Mod. Couldn't this be streamlined somehow? In discussion with Unapersson it turns out this is a single 70 to 80 page work that has been published in a magazine, several collections, and a standalone novel several editions. Another way to represent this is as a single NOVEL title that happens to be included in the contents list of the magazine, collections, etc.
I'm having a similar issue with Mervyn Peake's Boy in Darkness. I can add it as a collection, and put a single entry for the contents so it just contains the novella. It might be useful to add a novella type, as well as novel etc. Entered The Universes of E.
This has Concordances for Lensman, Skylark, a biliography and a couple of shorter fact articles about his works. Do you tag it as nonfiction or as a collection? Also found a data entry bug. I'd started to enter all the interior art as seperate entries and than noticed the comment to me From Edison's Conquest of Mars about only having one entry and listing them in the notes.
When I blanked out the entries and submitted the data it cut off the data at the first blank entry. You've heard of Linden? You must judge for yourself. He put his knee-cap out last winter and I put it in again, and that has made a friendly bond between us. It's not always easy to get him, and of course a small fee, a guinea I think, is usual, but if you wanted a sitting I could work it. I can only say that I have never detected him in fraud. And there is copy in it, too.
When things are more easy I'll write to you, Atkinson, and we can go more deeply into the matter. The article by the Joint Commissioners such was their glorious title aroused interest and contention. It had been accompanied by a depreciating leaderette from the sub-editor which was meant to calm the susceptibilities of his orthodox readers, as who should say: "These things have to be noticed and seem to be true, but of course you and I recognize how pestilential it all is. All the previous articles had only elicited a growl here or there from a hide-bound Catholic or from an iron-clad Evangelical, but now his post-bag was full.
Most of them were ridiculing the idea that psychic forces existed and many were from writers who, whatever they might know of psychic forces, had obviously not yet learned to spell. The Spiritualists were in many cases not more pleased than the others, for Malone had— even while his account was true —exercised a journalist's privilege of laying an accent on the more humorous sides of it. One morning in the succeeding week Mr. Malone was aware of a large presence in the small room wherein he did his work at the office. A page- boy, who preceded the stout visitor, had laid a card on the corner of the table which bore the legend 'James Bolsover, Provision Merchant, High Street, Hammersmith.
He wagged a paper accusingly at Malone, but his good-humoured face was wreathed in smiles. Malone, I think you and the young woman have done your best for us. But, of course, you know nothing and it all seems queer to you. Come to think of it, it would be a deal queerer if all the clever men who leave this earth could not among them find some way of getting a word back to us.
They don't change. And then, you know, one never knows what sort of message is needed. We had a clergyman in to see Mrs. Debbs yesterday. He was broken-hearted because he had lost his daughter. Debbs got several messages through that she was happy and that only his grief hurt her. That's not my girl'. And then suddenly she said: 'But I wish to goodness you would not wear a Roman collar with a coloured shirt'. That sounded a trivial message, but the man began to cry. It's the little things that count in this life —just the homely, intimate things, Mr.
Bolsover laughed. So was I once, so I can't blame you. But I called here with a purpose. I expect you are a busy man and I know that I am, so I'll get down to the brass tacks. First, I wanted to say that all our people that have any sense are pleased with the article. Algernon Mailey wrote me that it would do good, and if he is pleased we are all pleased. Not for publicity, mind you, but just for your own good —though we don't shrink from publicity, either. I have psychical phenomena seances at my own home without a professional medium, and if you would like I don't have many outsiders.
I wouldn't have one of those psychic research people inside my doors. Why should I go out of my way to be insulted by all their suspicions and their traps? They seem to think that folk have no feelings. But you have some ordinary common sense. That's all we ask. So long as you are fair-minded and don't disturb the conditions, all is well. Spirits out of the body don't like disagreeable people any more than spirits in the body do.
Be gentle and civil, same as you would to any other company. Bolsover, in reminiscent vein. They are not allowed to hurt humans, but we all do things we're not allowed to do, and they are very human themselves. You remember how The Times correspondent got his head cut open with the tambourine in one of the Davenport Brothers' seances. Very wrong, of course, but it happened.
No friend ever got his head cut open. There was another case down Stepney way. A money lender went to a seance. Some victim that he had driven to suicide got into the medium. He got the moneylender by the throat and it was a close thing for his life. But I'm off, Mr. We sit once a week and have done for four years without a break.

Eight o'clock Thursdays. Give us a day's notice and I'll get Mr. Mailey to meet you. He can answer questions better than I. Next Thursday! Very good. Bolsover lurched out of the room. Both Malone and Enid Challenger had, perhaps, been more shaken by their short experience than they had admitted, but both were sensible people who agreed that every possible natural cause should be exhausted —and very thoroughly exhausted —before the bounds of what is possible should be enlarged. Both of them had the utmost respect for the ponderous intellect of Challenger and were affected by his strong views, though Malone was compelled to admit in the frequent arguments in which he was plunged that the opinion of a clever man who has had no experience is really of less value than that of the man in the street who has actually been there.
These arguments, as often as not, were with Mervin, editor of the psychic paper Dawn, which dealt with every phase of the occult, from the lore of the Rosicrucians to the strange regions of the students of the Great Pyramid, or of those who uphold the Jewish origin of our blonde Anglo-Saxons. Mervin was a small, eager man with a brain of a high order, which might have carried him to the most lucrative heights of his profession had he not determined to sacrifice worldly prospects in order to help what seemed to him to be a great truth.
As Malone was eager for knowledge and Mervin was equally keen to impart it, the waiters at the Literary Club found it no easy matter to get them away from the corner-table in the window at which they were wont to lunch. Looking down at the long, grey curve of the Embankment and the noble river with its vista of bridges, the pair would linger over their coffee, smoking cigarettes and discussing various sides of this most gigantic and absorbing subject, which seemed already to have disclosed new horizons to the mind of Malone.
There was one warning given by Mervin which aroused impatience amounting almost to anger in Malone's mind. He had the hereditary Irish objection to coercion and it seemed to him to be appearing once more in an insidious and particularly objectionable form. He has clearly taken a fancy to you. They are like the rude foundations of a building which certainly help to sustain the edifice, but are forgotten when once you come to inhabit it. It is the higher superstructure with which we have to do. You would think that the physical phenomena were the whole subject— those and a fringe of ghosts and haunted houses —if you were to believe the cheap papers who cater for the sensationalist.
Of course, these physical phenomena have a use of their own. They rivet the attention of the inquirer and encourage him to go further. Personally, having seen them all, I would not go across the road to see them again. But I would go across many roads to get high messages from the beyond. Personally, of course, I am equally agnostic as to the messages and the phenomena. Paul was a good psychic. He makes the point so neatly that even his ignorant translators were unable to disguise the real occult meanings as they have succeeded in doing in so many cases.
It is the passage where he says that the gift of tongues, which was an obvious sensational thing, was for the uninstructed, but that prophecies, that is real spiritual messages, were for the elect. In other words that an experienced Spiritualist has no need of phenomena. By the way, there must have been a pretty high average of intelligence among those old congregations if Paul's letters could have been read aloud to them and thoroughly comprehended. However, I am down a side-track. What I wanted to say to you is that you must not take Bolsover's little spirit circus too seriously.
It is honest as far as it goes, but it goes a mighty short way. It's a disease, this phenomena hunting. I know some of our people, women mostly, who buzz around seance rooms continually, seeing the same thing over and over, sometimes real, sometimes, I fear, imitation. What better are they for that as souls or as citizens or in any other way? No, when your foot is firm on the bottom rung don't mark time on it, but step up to the next rung and get firm upon that.
But the paper goes to press to-day and I must get down to the printer. With a circulation of ten thousand or so we do things modestly, you know —not like you plutocrats of the daily press. I am practically the staff. I wonder. Guides, controls, psychic entities of some kind. Who the agents of vengeance —or I should say justice— are, is really not essential. The point is that they exist. These are the old theological bogies of the Middle Ages coming up again. I am surprised at a sensible man like you!
Mervin smiled —he had a whimsical smile —but his eyes, looking out from under bushy yellow brows, were as serious as ever. There are some queer sides to this question. As a friend I put you wise to this one. Thus encouraged, Mervin went into the matter. He rapidly sketched the career and fate of a number of men who had, in his opinion, played an unfair game with these forces, become an obstruction, and suffered for it.
He spoke of judges who had given prejudiced decisions against the cause, of journalists who had worked up stunt cases for sensational purposes and to throw discredit on the movement; of others who had interviewed mediums to make game of them, or who, having started to investigate, had drawn back alarmed, and given a negative decision when their inner soul knew that the facts were true. It was a formidable list, for it was long and precise, but Malone was not to be driven.
Jones said that Raphael was a bungler, and Mr. Jones died of angina pectoris. Therefore it is dangerous to criticize Raphael. That seems to be the argument. Look at Morgate. He has always been an enemy, for he is a convinced materialist. But he prospers —look at his professorship. Do you know anything of Falconer's private life? Well, take it from me he has got his dues. He doesn't know why. Some day these gentlemen will begin to compare notes and then it may dawn on them. But they get it. He went on to tell a horrible story of one who had devoted his considerable talents to picking Spiritualism to pieces, though really convinced of its truth, because his worldly ends were served thereby.
The end was ghastly —too ghastly for Malone. What you have said strikes me as pure superstition. If what you say is true you should have the police after you. But it is out of our hands. However, Malone, for what it's worth I have given you the warning and you can now go your way. Bye- bye! You can always ring me up at the office of Dawn.
If you want to know if a man is of the true Irish blood there is one infallible test. Put him in front of a swing-door with "Push" or "Pull" printed upon it. The Englishman will obey like a sensible man. The Irishman, with less sense but more individuality, will at once and with vehemence do the opposite. So it was with Malone. Mervin's well-meant warning simply raised a rebellious spirit within him, and when he called for Enid to take her to the Bolsover seance he had gone back several degrees in his dawning sympathy for the subject.
Challenger bade them farewell with many gibes, his beard projecting forward and his eyes closed with upraised eyebrows, as was his wont when inclined to be facetious. If you see a particularly good specimen of ectoplasm in the course of the evening don't forget your father. I have a microscope, chemical reagents and everything ready.
Perhaps even a small poltergeist might come your way. Any trifle would be welcome. The provision merchant's establishment of Mr. Bolsover proved to be a euphemism for an old-fashioned grocer's shop in the most crowded part of Hammersmith. The neighbouring church was chiming out the three-quarters as the taxi drove up, and the shop was full of people. So Enid and Malone walked up and down outside. As they were so engaged another taxi drove up and a large, untidy-looking, ungainly bearded man in a suit of Harris tweed stepped out of it. He glanced at his watch and then began to pace the pavement.
Presently he noted the others and came up to them. I thought so. Old Bolsover is terribly busy so you were wise to wait. Bless him, he is one of God's saints in his way. I am the gentleman whose credulity is giving rise to considerable anxiety upon the part of my friends, as one of the rags remarked the other day. Certainly, with his athletic proportions, which had run a little to seed but were still notable, and with his virile voice and strong if homely face, he gave no impression of instability. Mailey," said Enid. You should take your time over it. It is infinitely the most important thing in the world, so it is worth taking time over.
I took many years myself. Folk can be blamed for neglecting it, but no one can be blamed for being cautious in examination. Now I am all out for it, as you are aware, because I know it is true. There is such a difference between believing and knowing. I lecture a good deal. But I never want to convert my audience. I don't believe in sudden conversions. They are shallow, superficial things. All I want is to put the thing before the people as clearly as I can. I just tell them the truth and why we know it is the truth.
Then my job is done. They can take it or leave it. If they are wise they will explore along the paths that I indicate. If they are unwise they miss their chance. I don't want to press them or to proselytize. It's their affair, not mine. They were standing now in the full flood of light cast by Bolsover's big plate-glass window. She had a good look at him, his broad forehead, his curious grey eyes, thoughtful and yet eager, his straw-coloured beard which indicated the outline of an aggressive chin.
He was solidity personified —the very opposite of the fanatic whom she had imagined. His name had been a good deal in the papers lately as a protagonist in the long battle, and she remembered that it had never been mentioned without an answering snort from her father. Mailey were locked up in a room with Dad! What a grand world it would be if it would only realize its own limitations. It has helped us in comfort —if comfort is any use to us. Otherwise it has usually been a curse to us, for it has called itself progress and given us a false impression that we are making progress, whereas we are really drifting very steadily backwards.
Mailey," said Malone, who was getting restive under what seemed to him dogmatic assertion. Look at the S. Is that not a benefit to mankind? I value my electric reading-lamp, and that is a product of science. It gives us, as I said before, comfort and occasionally safety.
We were not put into this planet in order that we should go fifty miles an hour in a motor-car, or cross the Atlantic in an airship, or send messages either with or without wires. These are the mere trimmings and fringes of life. But these men of science have so riveted our attention on these fringes that we forget the central object.
It is not how you send a message, it is what the value of the message may be. At every stage this so-called progress may be a curse, and yet as long as we use the word we confuse it with real progress and imagine that we are doing that for which God sent us into the world. There is mental preparation and spiritual preparation, and we are neglecting both.
To be in an old age better men and women, more unselfish, more broadminded, more genial and tolerant, that is what we are for. It is a soul factory, and it is turning out a bad article. But Hullo! Force of habit, you see. My son says that if you press the third button of my waistcoat I automatically deliver a lecture. But here is the good Bolsover to your rescue. The worthy grocer had caught sight of them through the window and came bustling out, untying his white apron. I won't have you waiting in the cold. Besides, there's the clock, and time's up. It does not do to keep them waiting.
Punctuality for all that's my motto and theirs. My lads will shut up the shop. This way, and mind the sugar-barrel. They threaded their way amid boxes of dried fruits and piles of cheese, finally passing between two great casks which hardly left room for the grocer's portly form. A narrow door beyond opened into the residential part of the establishment. Ascending the narrow stair, Bolsover threw open a door and the visitors found themselves in a considerable room in which a number of people were seated round a large table.
There was Mrs. Bolsover herself, large, cheerful and buxom like her husband. Three daughters were all of the same pleasing type. There was an elderly woman who seemed to be some relation, and two other colourless females who were described as neighbours and Spiritualists. The only other man was a little grey-headed fellow with a pleasant face and quick, twinkling eyes, who sat at a harmonium in the corner.
Smiley, our musician," said Bolsover. It's vibrations, you know. Mailey could tell you about that. Ladies, you know Mr. Mailey, our very good friend. And these are the two inquirers —Miss Challenger and Mr. We respect the shining ones and we will not have them insulted. That won't happen again. We were rather upset over that," Bolsover added, turning to the visitors.
Then he wrote the whole thing up as an exposure in the public Press, when the only fraudulent thing present had been himself. The old lady sat down, but still regarded them with a suspicious eye. Bolsover bustled about and got things ready. Malone, will you sit between my wife and my daughter? Where would the young lady like to sit? Enid was feeling rather nervous.
Most natural, I am sure. Bolsover had switched off the electric light, but a candle burned in the middle of the table. Malone thought what a picture it would have made for a Rembrandt. Deep shadows draped it in, but the yellow light flickered upon the circle of faces —the strong, homely, heavy features of Bolsover, the solid line of his family circle, the sharp, austere countenance of Mrs. Seldon, the earnest eyes and yellow beard of Mailey, the worn, tired faces of the two Spiritualist women, and finally the firm, noble profile of the girl who sat beside him.
The whole world had suddenly narrowed down to that one little group, so intensely concentrated upon its own purpose. On the table there was scattered a curious collection of objects, which had all the same appearance of tools which had long been used. There was a battered brass speaking-trumpet, very discoloured, a tambourine, a musical- box, and a number of smaller objects.
I often wonder she troubles to come at all. We all help, I think. Maybe, I give as much as anyone. And mother, she is a help. Here the long series of sittings —How long, Mr. That is the most comprehensive word. The Christ used that word. It is 'dunamis' in the Greek, but the translators missed the point and translated it 'virtue'.
If a good Greek scholar who was also a profound occult student was to re-translate the New Testament we should get some eye- openers. Dear old Ellis Powell did a little in that direction. His death was a loss to the world. Malone, I want you just to note one or two things.
You see the white spots on the trumpet and the tambourine? Those are luminous points so that we can see where they are. The table is just our dining-table, good British oak.
- See a Problem?.
- List of Let's Players.
You can examine it if you like. But you'll see things that won't depend upon the table. Now, Mr. Smiley, out goes the light and we'll ask you for 'The Rock of Ages'. The harmonium droned in the darkness and the circle sang. They sang very tunefully, too, for the girls had fresh voices and true ears. Low and vibrant, the solemn rhythm became most impressive when no sense but that of hearing was free to act. Their hands, according to instructions, were laid lightly upon the table, and they were warned not to cross their legs.
Malone, with his hand touching Enid's, could feel the little quiverings which showed that her nerves were highly strung. The homely, jovial voice of Bolsover relieved the tension. Just a touch of frost in the air, too. I'll ask you now to join with me in prayer. It was effective, that simple, earnest prayer in the darkness —an inky darkness which was only broken by the last red glow of a dying fire.
You are our Father as well as theirs. Permit us, for a short space, to meet in brotherhood, that we may have an added knowledge of that eternal life which awaits us, and so be helped during our years of waiting in this lower world. Then they all sat in expectant silence Outside was the dull roar of traffic and the occasional ill-tempered squawk of a passing car. Inside there was absolute stillness. Enid and Malone felt every sense upon the alert and every nerve on edge as they gazed out into the gloom.
New vibrations. They have to tune them in to get harmony. Give us another tune, Mr. It was still playing when a woman's voice cried: "Stop! They are here! Silence again, and then it came —such a marvel to the visitors, such a matter of course to the circle. There was a burst of greeting and of welcoming laughter from the circle.
They were all speaking at once. Oh, what big man with beard! Mailey, Mister Mailey, I meet him before. He big Mailey, I little femaley. Glad to see you, Mr. Big Man. Enid and Malone listened with amazement, but it was impossible to be nervous in face of the perfectly natural way in which the company accepted it. The voice was very thin and high —more so than any artificial falsetto could produce. It was the voice of a female child. That was certain. Also that there was no female child in the room unless one had been smuggled in after the light went out.
That was possible. But the voice seemed to be in the middle of the table. How could a child get there? Gentleman," said the voice, answering his unspoken thought. Daddy lift Wee One on to table. Now I show what Daddy not able to do. The little circle of luminous paint rose noiselessly into the air. Now it was swaying above their heads.
Up it went and they heard the metallic tapping above them. Then the high voice came from above:. Daddy got fishing-rod and put trumpet up to ceiling. But how Daddy make the voice, eh? What you say, pretty English Missy? Here is a present from Wee One. Mailey," said Bolsover. Speak to her, Miss Challenger. Keep the vibrations going. All one time to me. I to do my job as eight-year child. When job done then Wee One become Big One all in one day. No time here, same as you have. I always eight-year-old. They all laughed. It was the most genial, free-and-easy association possible.
Malone heard Enid's voice whispering in his ear. Wee One sing to you. They sang the beautiful hymn together. As the verse closed an amazing thing happened —amazing, at least, to the novices, though it called for no remark from the circle. The trumpet still shone upon the table, but two voices, those apparently of a man and a woman, broke out in the air above them and joined very tunefully in the singing.
The hymn died away and all was silence and tense expectancy once more. It was broken by a deep male voice from the darkness. It was an educated English voice, well modulated, a voice which spoke in a fashion to which the good Bolsover could never attain. It is not my wisdom. Give me no credit. I do but pass it on.
Good evening, young lady! You know nothing of your own powers or destiny. You will find them out. Good evening, sir, you are on the threshold of great knowledge. Is there any subject upon which you would wish me to say a few words? I see that you are making notes. Malone had, as a fact, disengaged his hand in the darkness and was jotting down in shorthand the sequence of events. I will not take long, for others are waiting. The room is crowded with spirit people.
I wish you to understand that there is one man, and only one, for each woman, and one woman only for each man. When those two meet they fly together and are one through all the endless chain of existence. Until they meet all unions are mere accidents which have no meaning. Sooner or later each couple becomes complete.
