Unicorn clarification.

Of course, it is always good to remember that Lisa Frank did not invent the unicorn.


Anne McCaffrey's  short story collection Get Off the Unicorn  was originally titled Get of the Unicorn. Her editor didn't get it, so "Off" it became.

Editors know so many things, and are smart.

Editors are sort of a necessary evil, like colonoscopies. Back when I was writing for Starlog I used to mess around a bit with commas or spelling, just to give David McDonnell something to do.

Your first sentence is positively Twainian.

And Clemens was funny. Oh, for men, even in his darkest episodes, funny. The whole notion of your doings tickles me... not quite pink, more like a blueish-purple. But that's better than pink, trust me.

He had to be funny, with a middle name like Langhorne.
