Thomas Disch is dead. Sigh.
I’ll make another stab at On Wings of Song.
He wasn’t a nice guy, from reports. He had little patience, tended to make enemies of friends, and I wish I’d met him. One of the better comments from the Making Light discussion group:
> I intensely disliked some of his stories, which I suspect would have pleased him.
Indeed I *hated* his short story Slaves, which is probably why I re-read it half a dozen times until I finally got it. I suspect that many politicians would find Displaying the Flag disgusting.
