Yep, definitely in the cheezy fantasy fiction camp.

I also worked at "the wiz" during a lot of the time mentioned in the 
"Lynx Chronicles". While Kim and I may be on opposite sides of the 
Gibson "Practical Business" vs. "Evil Empire" debate, we are in 100% 
agreement about Lynx.

Lynx seemed to be visiting G-WIZ from another planet and sending his 
observations home to his alien overlords. There is so much wrong with 
his account I don't know where to start.

Actually keeping this private might be a good idea in light of Lynx's 
litigious leanings.
