James Robinson derived the name “Another Social Blunder” from the title of a Tim Sandlin novel, Social Blunders. That work, published in 1995, was the third in a series centered on characters from the (mostly) fictional town of GroVont, Wyoming. In those works, Sandlin explored the occasionally turbulent relationships between immaturity and innocence, between pain and personal growth, and between regret and redemption. "The Ro" used his Another Social Blunder character to probe similar questions.
