Rhyme or Treason (the Hard Fought Illusion of Choice)
A collection of darkly humorous stories and columns. In "The Twilight of the Clowns" a traditional way of life ends as clowning ceases to be a viable way of life; In "Everybody Loves a Little Elf" elves save a man's business but they create a literal stink about property rights and slave labor; In "More than One Day in the Life of Igor Igoravitch" a KGB agent is caught up in a web of intrigue that is his own creation; Australians move to take over the world with their national food, the hot dog; The web of lies in Charlotte's Web is exposed; and the price of the simulacra in the window is finally laid bare.
