These are the two I like, as well.  I'm not fond of most of his
other stuff; sometimes it's too scary, and I see the seams a bit
too much.  But I love those two.

Except -- does anyone else have Triskell Tales?  Where he's got
the *amazing* short story about the Three Plushketeers and the
Garden Slugs?

The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should
therefore be hushed.  A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could
hardly be propagated.  If the doctrine be admitted, rulers have only to
declare war and they are screened at once from scrutiny ...  In war,
then, as in peace, assert the freedom of speech and of the press.
Cling to this as the bulwark of all our rights and privileges.
