Middle Initials, part II

All a misunderstanding between Graham and the copy editor. I had signed my introductions, for example, to the Emperor Julian’s “Letter to a Pagan Priest,” with my initials. I had thought that Graham was doing the same with his; that’s a common practice with some encyclopedias, for example. But apparently he had not, so the editor was asking if it was important for me to have my initials on my entries.

Of course not, if that’s not the book style. What a commotion.
