Ah yes.  (:  I am a very large fan of Hexwood, but every time I try to
call it 'my favorite' I am reminded of such books as Homeward Bounders,
Archer's Goon, and Power of Three.

I have found so far that people either seem to love Hexwood or hate it,
and there's little middle ground.  I adore it.  (:

I would say something more intelligent about Hexwood now, but I'm afraid I
really ought to go run away and do homework.

Why does this happen?  ASWM is the only DWJ that Princeton's library has,
and I think that's terrible :(
