That explains why one of the goblins mentioned in "Goblin's Market" is
described as wombatlike. It seemed such an unlikely metaphor...

BTW, conference attendees, I received many compliments on my necklace, so
maybe some of you would be interested in the designer's website:

Subject: [DWJ] Book recommendation

For those people who enjoyed Judith Ridge's paper on being an Australian
reader, I must recommend _Rosetti's Wombat_ by John Simmons. (Middlesex
University Press)

Did you know Rosetti had a wombat? Me neither. The book is all about the
craze for Australian animals in Victorian England and it's a hoot!
