Jack never gives his sources - that is why readers must always question where fact begins and fiction ends in his writings. I say this as someone who is an actual professional researcher. I think he is doing some good work - but it would be so much more valuable if it was properly sourced. As it stands, we have read everything he writes as pure fiction, knowing that it was inspired by history but possibly very made up after that.

Jules, it's very difficult to add all those references you are looking for, but if you are all astute they are easyily gotten from The Rooms or MUN Library. I have been doing a talk on this for 15 years at the Paradise Municipal Day, and at Paradise Schools. It's easy to attack Jack when when you don't know yourself what you are talking about, go check the facts, and don't be an armchair critic. The simple facts are that what Jack cites are actual facts. Rememer, this is a letter, not a university paper written for submission.

Nothing like a few uncited facts, without references, solid evidence... to back them up. Hey Jack? It would be lovely to know if your assertions have any validity behind them - to help figure out where the line is between fact and fiction.
