Not existing is not easy in chapter 11 of To Ride the Lightning Bolt

Is this your future, Daphne?
(“The Devil” from the Visconti deck)

Daphne Vane has been replaced by a more perfect version of herself. Far from fulfilling her dreams, this has become a nightmare for Daphne, who just suffered a beating at the hands (and shoes) of her alter ego. Daphne’s not even sure if she really exists anymore, let alone whether she has a future. So, of course, things get weirder in “My life as an unperson,” chapter 11 of To Ride the Lightning Bolt, my weekly serial about a young American woman whose problem of being forced into a marriage she doesn’t want suddenly doesn’t seem like such an important issue right now. If your interest has been piqued, but you haven’t been reading so far, you can start here.
