    Not that I'm of any importance, but I say...

    Every third posting (because I'm third right now) can tie the previous two together... fictitiously.

    My cousin's cousin's friend's sister, Jane is Washington Irving's neighbor's great-grandson's friend's wife - and they live across the street from Flannery O'Connor's great-neice's ex-dog's house.

    Southern Gothic, hooray!  Okay, for something a bit more lighthearted, how about a Mississippi writer?  No, not Faulkner, someone else can have him. [Lighthearted???] The one and only....

    John Grisham.  Woohooooo! 

    EDIT:  Sorry, Rafini - I missed seeing Mark Twain, whom I love.  I didn't mean to imply that he's Southern Gothic.  sorry about that.
