[1 June 2010] I’ve taken down all links to authors’ works previously posted here. I put them up in the spirit of scholarly collegiality, but some cheesy individual(s), in complete disrespect of scholarly work–and copyright law–purloined some of the material and posted on a site for sale–to the profit of the purloiner, not the scholar. A Pox on them! and Anathema!
