Dreyses and Dragons...

I just finished reading Marko's short story, "Ink and Blood", published in (at? You kids and your electronical publications...) Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

It was mondo creative. It's got fountain pens and needle guns and magic and 19th Century Germany and adolescent romance and... well, just read it for yourself.

Just think: In a world where magic had to be written down to work, the fountain pen would have had the same impact as Hiram Maxim's most famous invention did in ours...

Thank you for linking that. Marko is one of Sturgeon's 5%. They don't come along too often.

re: ditto sheets.

Oh, I am LOL'ing so hard here! I wish I'd wrote that. :D
