Things begin to heat up in Prophecies and Penalties with chapter 15, “Lost in translation.” As Emily Fisher is about to find out, all sorts of things can be lost in translation: names, places, even herself. Yet somehow she’s stumbling closer to whoever murdered High Councilor Stephen Nash. Or is she?
Prophecies and Penalties is my weekly serial about a not-quite-detective dispatched to solve a murder at the religion commune in Vermont where she began her life. She’s run into a “man of the prophecy” who doesn’t believe he is, a previously unknown half-sister who likes beating people, and an incest survivor married to the town’s police chief. Such is life in Quasopon and among the Children of the New Revelation. To read more, start here!
Don’t forget a kid sister that the religious community thinks is possessed by a demon.
Thanks for being my straight man. Elsie, Emily’s sister, will make a major appearance in the next chapter.
Hey, you’re getting good at this humour-thing; so dry you could use it to mop up spills.
I’m afraid many people see my sense of humor as an arid wasteland.
I have to admit I’ve been slow to appreciate it fully ; at first it was slipping right past me unseen. Written humour has not the inflections to clue it in. But, I’ve grown more used to it now.
Yep,. that just about describes it. But don’t lose it; I like it.
