[FoRK] What's on my Kindle...

One thing I've noticed (even more) since getting my Kindle is
just how much Stephenson likes the word "sphincter".

Snow Crash:

"Hiro can feel his anal sphincter contracting to the size of a pore"

and a reference to the pupil as the most delicate of sphincters...

Big U: "Krupp cuts a fart! The sphinxter cannot hold!"

etc etc

P.S. And I'm not even cheating by doing a Kindle search...
