THE first Shallow end appeared in February 1972 and this is my one‐hundredth. Arithmeticians and those of you with electronic gadgets may compute a greater total of New library world issues since that date (and if you make it 104 you're right); but, in 1977 I had a sod‐it‐all spell (or ‘brief sabbatical’ as cb prefers to call it) and in the December 1976 issue, John Fines wrote the column under the heading ‘Deep down he's really Shallow’—a scurrilous piece which would have landed him in court but for my magnanimity. (True, he was drunk at the time of composing it, but it was my gin he'd been slurping to get that way, so I should have sued him for some‐thing.) Howsoever, this really is the one‐hundredth Shallow—or the century of the very common man, as you might say.
