However, it is possible to produce books with a smaller infinities of suck.
Revising old books also keeps one humble. Because one looks at things that one thought was pretty hot stuff two or three years ago, and goes, Oh, my God. The suck.
And one hooks up the suckosector and attempts to, um, vacuum the suck (I almost said "suck the suck") out of the old book, and gets enormous amounts of suck out (although one can't ever get all the suck out: some things remain impervious to suckosection.)
And one is forced to realize that the books one thinks is pretty good today will look about as sucktastic as this one in, oh, two to four years.
