  1. Insidious scheming meets snake oil salesman, and a good thing too because I think the second theme is underrepresented out there - small scale plots would presumably be more common than world ends. This is a good addition to the range.

  2. Things not always being what they first appear to be is a wonderful tool for writing horror or fantasy. I apologize as I am still under the weather. I spent all day catching up on Thundercats and watching documentaries about the early israelites and a neat one by Steven Hawking regarding time travel.
