EDNote--OK, this really is the last one, and I'm only including it because I liked, and had toyed with myself, the idea mentioned in the last entry--though I would have named Strong Opinions instead. ~SB

I like Boyd's style, so:

Greatest fictional character, for depth and breadth, if not truth (too personal): Bloom, yes
Greatest fictional ensemble: The Third Policeman
Greatest fictional character, for fascination: Iago, James Durie or Conrad's Marlowe
Greatest fictional character, for memorability: Swelter or Flay in Gormenghast, or Don Quixote
Greatest semi-fictional character: Sir John Oldcastle
Greatest Nabokovian fictional character: the author of Speak, Memory
