In April and May of 1988 Analog published a two part essay by Michael
Flynn called "The State of Psychohistory." I found it very illuminating
on EP and it's had a powerful influence on my thinking ever since.. I
started a search in back issue collections for it and when I find it
I'll pass it on to you. Flynn made EP very understandable. -- Thomas
