Mr. Shepard, congratulations on winning the Asimov's Readers Poll for "Ariel." I've been reading your work in Asimov's for many years and I think that story stands with some of your best.

I liked this story as well. I'm wondering Lucius, if Ariel's name is an allusion to the slyph Ariel in Popes "The Rape of the Lock"?
