  • From a short essay on footnotes: 'My favourite helpful annotation in fantasy appears in Lord Dunsany's story "The Bird of the Difficult Eye", where "beasts prowling in the blackness gluttered" at the doomed protagonist. Gluttered? A footnote is provided: "See any dictionary, but in vain."'

  • Ha! That's one of the best footnotes I've ever heard of!
