It's infrequent for authors to have their paintings be the thing of a long, designated, severe and energetic discussion almost immediately after its booklet. John Holbo's dedication to utilizing the web as an tool for bringing approximately accurately any such discussion is an excellent instance of the way new applied sciences can increase the standard of our highbrow exchanges. And to make that vigorous discussion be the item of one other booklet, online and in not easy replica, is another contribution.
