Any gender neutral nicknames for Elizabeth anyone knows?

Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory.

OKAY I AM A TOTAL MOOK and somehow did not know about this site until today?  Lots of essays from and about Hugo, and IN ENGLISH for those of us who need that. It’s the contemporary stuff that really interests me, but other people might be interested in some of the later criticism too.

Looks like the site’s last update was in 2009, but for now at least most of it is up and navigable!
