I don't know.  I try to do as little filtering as possible since
I'm not too fond of my role as the Gatekeeper.  (There's not even
Sigourney Weaver as Keyholder to make it interesting!)  I've only
failed to pass up two requests that I recall - one was a person who
had no real interest in buying TFT, but just wanted to say he'd
talked to Howard, and the other said he had no money, but a great
idea.  I said to them just what I've said here - if you have the basic
terms written up by a lawyer and are ready to put cash on the table,
then HT *may* get back to you.  To the best of my knowledge, of the
offers passed along to the Thompsons, only one got as far as Howard,
and he never responded.  I don't know why.
