Sayings about Storm Jameson: An intelligent man or woman willing to make a career of reviewing fiction is hard to come by ... And the temporaries do the work cheaply.

Saying about Storm Jameson: Only one person in a thousand knows the trick of really living in the present.

Which is exactly what it is-a miracle and unrepeatable.
