    That's only a fraction of what I found out about it. It's all old information, though. I just wonder if interest has dropped off because the key was found or if it was because the key was unfindable. I've e-mailed the publicist, publisher, the author's pseudonym, and have the actaul author's e-mail but I didn't want to e-mail that as he seems to value his privacy and I didn't want to freak him out. This whole thing does seem to be localized to the northern east coast, though.

    Has anyone found out if this hunt is still ongoing? If it is I think we should try to solve it.

    Default False Alarm

    I mistakenly thought I found an odd link. In the Robert Heinlein classic "Farmer in the Sky" there is a character named Duck Miller.

    http://www.heinleinsociety.org/conco...oks/fis_hc.htm

    Until just before I posted, I confused Duck Miller and Duck Williams.

    Sorry for the false alarm,
    AnotherDoth

    hummm - remembering I bought this one a while back - need to give it a full read - made it through about half before getting distracted by life and other pursuits - was enjoying the story - and - just for a lark - time for a re-read of the Farmer book - i remember it was an excellent read - didn't recall the name - thanks for bringing my attention back! glad you posted

    Default Anyone have any new information?

    I was just wondering if anyone had any new information about this book. I just received it the other day, have not finished reading it yet. There are clues in it, like no page 11, etc. Just wanted to check and see if anyone was still on this.

    I still have my copy here somewhere - haven't looked at it in many months - deserves another good look/see!

    I think you should. It seems all the posts on here and on Q4T stopped a long time ago. I read all the posts on Q4T and there was some fighting goin on it seems, but....this has yet to be solved. And it's an amazing book. I know some people have hit a brick wall with this one but maybe if we put our heads together again, you never know.

    Do either of you have suggestions? Perhaps we can all read the same chapter and brainstorm a bit.

    What I was thinking of doing was starting at the beginning and going story by story. There is plenting of info over on the Q4T boards which I am going to compile by story, and hopefully post here. I'm going to start on that tommorrow. Maybe that will help light our intellectual fires.

    I'm on board with that.
