when I was a kid I tried to work out if he was the same as Bill, but I could tell he wasn't. Begs the question, did he join the Coot Club or was he an egg collector? Or would there be some sort of matter/antimatter explosion if as a metafictional character he encountered the hyper-realism of the Coot novels? Nankai 10:38, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
