# I don't want to set the world on fire #

Many years ago, one of my near contemporaries at LMH wrote what from the blurb appeared to be a sub-C.S. Lewis fantasy novel with painfully obvious Christian allegory (e.g. there is this prince that went away, and some people don't believe he ever existed and ta-da he comes back to save the world).
I had a look for this on various websites today, her (husband's) surname having popped into my mind, and what should I find on one of these sites but the annotation " Note that most of the stock of this title was destroyed in a warehouse fire shortly after publication. "
Who says that God doesn't work in mysterious ways? I see this crap allegory and loose the thunderbolt...
