It's too bad Cushman didn't interview any of the de Forest Research people for this book. Their input is mentioned a few times, but mostly in the context of legality issues (i.e. the potential plagiarism in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" and "Arena") rather than the creative input they often had. Obviously, this is my own pet area of research, but it irks me to see them once again overlooked. Almost as much as it irks me to read "Kellum De Forest" (it's "Kellam de Forest") and "The Kellam de Forest Research Company" (by this time it's simply "de Forest Research"). I know -- picky, picky.
