FAN #123: "Waste Management" by David Mix Barrington

Now up at the Sobel Wiki is For All Nails vignette #123: "Waste Management" by David Mix Barrington.  This is an immediate sequel to FAN #122: "The Unforgettable Fire".  Dave didn't like the idea of Paddy and Fingers getting away with the murder of Steven Taylor in "The Unforgettable Fire", so he decided to do something about it.

"Waste Management" was first posted to the soc.history.what-if newsgroup on 18 September 2002 at 4:33 pm, about ten hours after "The Unforgettable Fire".

By coincidence I've just finished reading At Swim-Two-Birds by Flann O'Brien, an absurdist Irish novel in which (among many other things) some characters take horrible revenge upon their author when they acquire the ability to write his story. Perhaps my retribution was a little over the top, but as Lamont Cranston once said, "the weed of crime bears bitter fruit".

The ten-hour turnaround may be an exaggeration as the Cabal did privately circulate vignettes before they were posted to SHWI.
