Thank you, Neil, for a lovely and perfect explanation of the difference
between Jones and Rowling. I agree as well about the Rowling books
resembling (very good) cartoons.

Rowling was brough up at a game day-- the nucleus were lads together in
university about a decade ago, though it's grown, and the group meets
monthly. May I forward your remarks to members of the group, in support of
my attempts at description and as an extension of them? :D
