I'm not done yet.  It seems the first few questions were WAY too easy.  I'm
trying to find someting a bit more challenging.  (I've got nearly 3000 books in
my SF collection, so watch out...)

We boggies are a hairy folk
Who love to eat until we choke.
Loving all like friend and brother,
And hardly ever eat each other.
Ever hungry, ever thirsting,
Never stop till belly's bursting.
Chewing chop and pork and muttons,
A merry race of boring gluttons.
Sing: Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble,
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble.
Boggies gather round the table,
Eat as much as you are able.
Gorge yourselves from moon to noon,
( Don't forget your plate and spoon).
Anything edible, we've got dibs on,
And hope we all die with our bibs on.
Ever gay, we'll never grow up,
Come! And sing and play  and throw-up!
Sing: Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble,
Gobble, gobble, gobble,

Now my daughter just declared that this proves what she
already know, we're all nuts.  Of course, since she's read
it three or four times also, I guess she can join the cult.

Which book and by who, the main person in the book is the 1st child born on
earth in 14,000 years.

   Sounds like an old AC Clarke book.  Alvin in the "City of Stars" or
something like that?  I probably have 50+ Clarke books here and there.  They
all blend together. ;)  Or was it "Beyond the Fall of Night" with Benford?

I think the titles you're thinking of are
"Against the Fall of Night" and "The City
and the Stars"...

   IIRC, there's both an "Against..." and a "Beyond...".  Sequel of the other?

  I think you're right about "The City and the Stars"... that sounds more
like it!

One of the interesting things to observe about "the internet" is the sort of
things that it does well (along with the many things that it doesn't do
nearly as well as one might have hoped.)  Over in rec.arts.sf.written (which
makes the traffic level of RMR look like less than a DRIP) is a collection
of people that can identify obscure SF novels (as well as short stories that
perhaps appeared in some SF magazine 30 years ago) based on the THINNEST
of descriptions.  It's amazing.  Uncanny, even.

The net in general is very good (but not quite uncanny) at recomending and
indentifying books in general.
