Hm... there's an unanswered question there. Is it, in fact, that Nick
merely overstepped into another world... or did someone send him there?
I'm confused about that part.

and Maxwell Hyde, Mini and Helga and even Romanov. There were hints
about all these characters' backstories and origins that I wish I could
have followed up.
Yes, how did Mini turn out to be a world-traveller, anyway?
And has everyone else noticed that males in DWJ's adult and young adult
books are getting to be more and more finely craftedly jerks who more
or less mean well but can't be bothered unless you put a branch of thorn
under their metaphorical couch?

"If the injustice ... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the
agent of injustice to another, then I say, break the law. Let your life be a
counter-friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at
any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong, which I condemn."
-- Thoreau, "Resistance to Civil Government"
