Oh, a bit of non-fish trivia? Who wrote The Screwfly Solution *(hint -
it was an SF writer) and who was the person behind the pseudonym that it
was written under? Another hint: Kurt Vonnegut is RIGHT OUT! (to
paraphrase Monty Python). Plus Vonnegut did not write as Kilgore Trout,
as some think. Hey, there's a fish tie-in after all! Feel free to reply
off-list so as not to consume NANFA bandwidth.

Apologies to those not of a literary bent.
