Oh, just an unexpected or unusual variation. Odd term, come to think
of it. As we often do, on this list. :) Paul's original statement
was a lot more elegant (I looked it up after finishing the book, as I
couldn't remember the TG reference.) To be quite honest, had I come
across this book in a bookshop, I'd probably have avoided it. Partly
because I found the cover hideous, and partly because it seems so
like everything TG parodies.
