True to fiction ...

Brandywine Books links to an interesting of "how much truth should we allow in a work of fiction."
I think we have a terminological problem here. Fact and truth are not equivalent terms. Facts may be true, but truth encompasses more than facts. Fiction fails when it proves false.

  1. Well said, and I fully agree. I was not careful in my use of terms.
