Chapter 4 of Magician’s Misfortune

Harry's in for s surprise, but not the one he's figuring on.

Harry’s in for another surprise or two, but not the one he was figuring on.

Harry Eberhardt’s plan in going to Farnham’s only strip club was to conduct his investigation of the demonic murder of a prostitute while trying to seduce his colleague Eurydice “Deecee” Young. He didn’t know Deecee was a lesbian. And that’s not all that Harry doesn’t know. Clothing isn’t the only thing that’s going to be stripped down to “The bare essentials” in chapter 4 of Magician’s Misfortune, my ongoing serialized story that appears every Friday. If you’ve not been following the story, you can start at the beginning.

    • Brian Bixby says:

      The picture was an illustration by Charles-Dominique-Joseph Eisen (1720-1778) for the 1762 edition of “Fables” by Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695). The specific fable in question is entitled (in English) “The Devil of Pope-Fig Island.” You can find the text online; suffice to say the clever young miss tricks the devil into thinking she’s been badly scratched.

    I do like that picture. And I’ve feeling the reason the demon is looking so intently is it isn’t the usual female formation down there. Hermaphrodite? Am I right?
