I remembered that I had included Marlyn Morny, very briefly, in Mistification! The novel not only carries lots of footnotes, but lots of mini stories, as well. Here is one of them. I still have the idea to use, I think, because I really only touch on it here.
The Myth of the Holy Goddess
Every year, on this day, they go to this place, with roses grown individually and at great expense. These they lay down on the Square, the place from where the Goddess is said to rise.
From her martyrdom many hundreds of years before this place had been blessed; those who come to pray are given life, are given this gift of birth. The Great Goddess of Sex, Marlyn Morny, provides.
In other news, I saw a book of mine for the first time at a second-hand book sale. Does this mean I’ve made it to the next level? It did feel a bit sad to see it there, but the stall owners assured me it was because someone wanted to share it with others. Weren’t they kind? I signed it and told them to ask for twice the price.
At the stall I bought “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and the Batman series “A Death in the Family.” So I did celebrate free comics day, but I paid for the comics, because it was for a very good cause: http://www.pegasusact.com.au/ It’s a riding school for the disabled and is a gorgeous place.
I hope they sold the rejected Slights for heaps of money.
