The title comes from Dr. Montgomery Blake's costume--he decided to dress as a wizard and train a raven to sit on his shoulder and croak things like "doom!" and "nevermore!" Unfortunately, all the nearby ravens have figured out that perching on Dr. Blake and talking might be a way to get food, so every time he sets foot out-of-doors he's trailed by a flock of them.(less)

Thanks, Melissa! I do plan (eventually) to get back to the Turing series and start closing some of the open ends.
