Re: Robert

You had wanted to marry Robert, but when his son Richard got pregnant, you had to marry him. Now Bob's your uncle. You live in a small, isolated agricultural community, don't you? Actually, Horrorshow's drabble reminded me that when I was young, stories such as people "going off to Canada"...

Re: Baxter

Also, I so wanted to read something like this at the end: Startled, Gloria "accidentally" dropped him -- one more scuff on his headgear. Easy for you to say. If he had given you what you'd like, you'd toss him out for 11 too many words. My quibble is with the last line. Diaper-clad babies...

Re: the 576 to Asgard

Nice critique, spareinch. One thing that appeals to me about this story is its potential to scale. This is a portrait of Odin in a dystopian modern framework. But you've got an entire pantheon from different cultures and POVs. Plus studying them with the intention of putting them in your series will...

Re: old news, "GHASTLY RELICS OF WATERLOO"

What's the betting there'd be an EU regulation against it nowadays? Which would probably result in a Greek resurgence in their ancient pottery business! The legendary Grecian Urn.

Re: the 576 to Asgard

You have a vivid imagination and an ear for weaving a tale. An editor would be of great value. Put on your editor's cap and rewrite. "The man on the bus looks old as time" sounds better for a starter. Sprawling mess of facial hair... well, what else would it be? Change to "fearsome fo...
