Let's Play Nice
by Cathy L.Z. Smith
I've been puzzling for some weeks now over the purpose of the vehement
attacks on the notion of intellectual property rights (IPR) being mounted by some who call

produce an original work of fiction.

Die! Geezers! Die!
by Bob Wallace

monsters their opponents ( most of them to the readers of TLE) believe. They were
men faced with choices, men stuck in a world of shades of grey and making decisions with
black and white consequences.
