There are two matters I wish to disclaim concerning the content of
this book. The first has to do with the use of obscenities and the second
with the accuracy or authority of linked-site content.
The only obscene words used in Into the Abyss are those used by interview
subjects, and they are few and far between. A few sites linked to this book, however,
do contain obscene words and images. I linked
to those sites because their content expands upon the topic being discussed
in Into the Abyss.
A link to an external web site does not guarantee the accuracy
or authority of the site, although considerable care was taken to connect to the
best web sites available. The English Department at St. Louis University
maintains a site useful for
the authority of a Web page.
