Rob - FYI: Catch-22 is nonfiction.

Sorry, Cappy... you are correct. What was I thinking???

Alright, I just can't resist these things. If anyone is remotely interested, here's mine.

Catch 22 is novel (fiction) with fictional characters.

It may be based on historical events (WW2) but the story is fiction based on fictional characters.

Rob you were right the first time.

Saying Catch 22 is NON FICTION is like saying Gone With The Wind was as well. I think we are all smart enough to figure out the difference between non fiction and a historical "novel".

Glad to see you appreciate Heinlein!

You did notice he was a cat-lover, right?

For Ruth's sake guys, tongues out of cheeks, please. rofl. It's true, but fiction.
