Speaking of Wikipedia, help 'em out if you can, will ya? Thanks.


  1. Hello,

    First of all, thank you!

    I tried to do something similar to this, except it would mapall the interrelations between chapters in the whole book. I lacked the discipline for it. You didn't and your endeavour was even harder.

    I wont link you to my blog since i made 2 embarassing posts 4 years ago and never touched it again. I have a new outlet for my obssession with VOTF, and as soon as it has any worthy content, if you're at all interested I'll link it up.

    Also, you probably know this by now, but I Travel in Suspenders is actually based upon the real events and life of Alfred Rouse.


    anyway, all the best, congratulations on your discipline and excellent work.


  2. Hey Art,
    This the link to my blog thingy, it's still very embrionary, but i already had some fun and learned new stuff with it.

    I hope you enjoy it!
