I've identified and linked full etexts for 9 of the 10 'epiclets' that Danis Rose misnames "Finn's Hotel":

I The Irish Chinchinjoss
ll Kindness to Fishes
Ill A Tale of a Tub
IV Issy and the Dragon
V The Big Kiss
VI The Staves of Memory
VII Skyward to Stardom
VIII The House of a Hundred Bottles
IX Here Comes Everybody
X Here's Lettering You

#4 has me stumped, though. It opens:

"For her pity there were times she even pitied the damned old devil himself playing demon patience after his lunch of hot air fanning himself with his asbestos slippers in the coolingroom in hell. For her charity one day when it was sneezing cold she met a beggargirl in the park and, having no small change about her, she went behind a bramblebush, slipped off her sprigged petticoat and gave it to the beggargirl who instantly disappeared (she having been in point of fact Saint Dympna who got up the exhibition of poverty on purpose) along with the petticoat..."

'pity... pitied' sounds to me like Rose has ignored a deletion.

'For her pity... For her charity' might be the start of an enumeration of virtues?

I vaguely recall a notebook note "asbestos"... there's plenty of exquisite joyceanisms here:

demon patience
lunch of hot air
asbestos slippers
sneezing cold
exhibition of poverty

Experimentally linkblogging on Twitter today has gone well (though only 2 of 8 found a 'view summary' card). So I think I'll continue there more, and here less-to-none...

I enjoy following your osmotic metamorphoses into and off of various social networks about as much as I enjoy software upgrades.
