The comment "I do wonder what lies at the bottom of the ocean!" makes me think of Jules Verne. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea is an example of how he anticipated truths stranger than fiction in many of his novels.
Reminded of how truth can be stranger than fiction, I sent copies of The Sum of Her Parts to both players in this dramatic reconnection. How many others have wondered about reeling in a “dead body” when they have something really heavy on the line?
