I always thought of postmodernists as free-lance loners:

"I was between cases.  I'm Mike Mallet, and I'm a postmodernist. . .'I
get fifty bucks a day plus expenses, Mrs. Van Voir.'"

I look forward to informing my co-author that as a post-modernist she is
now rich.  She is going to make some snarky remark about the fallacy of
the undivided middle, or threaten to divide my middle, or snarl about
this being merely the latest sneaky move in the War of Northern
Aggression.

I got several private e-mails asking how to order this book, so please
forgive the following self-promotion.  It's listed on Amazon.com and
selling in mass bookstores like B. Dalton, Barnes & Noble, and Borders,
and can wind up shelved in Horror, Science Fiction, TV and Film, or even
Literature-I guess the presence of Will Shakespeare as a character
classed up even a vampire story in that bookstore's perception.

Again, it's "Forever Knight: These Our Revels," Anne Hathaway-Nayne,
Berkley/Ace Books, release date April 1, 1998 in Canada and the US.
