I neglected to mention, in the rant about "Spider and I," that I've had one successful attempt to obtain permission to quote song lyrics. The manuscript of The Five of Cups ends with a passage from the Indigo Girls' "Kid Fears." I contacted Amy Ray, who has wisely retained control of her work, and she graciously gave me permisison to include the lyrics in the Subterranean Press edition. But then, because the universe thrives on irony, a communications snafu somewhere in the production process led to the lyrics being included in the ARCs (hence, they're mentioned in one of the Locus reviews), but not in the final, printed book itself.
