There are ways of becoming an infaillible marksman.

All it requires is a little sacrilege.

So deprimierend wie die Wahlergebnisse für die auch sonst waren, zumindest mit dem Ergebnis für kann ich zufrieden sein.

Tales about changelings - human infants switched for dwarves or other spirits - get very disturbing once you realize they are basically folkloric excuses for .

"This baby is not right in some manner, and thus I must maltreat it until the spirits bring me my real baby back!" 😬

I did the Thing. Waiting time: Zero.

Also, I really appreciate how painless elections are here in Germany, compared to what I've heard of the USA. Registration is automatic, voting stations are plentiful, and the whole thing is done on Sundays, i.e. when almost no one in Germany has to work.

"Post-Post-Apocalyptic Dance Party!" 😆

I dunno if I will actually get this game, but the trailer was fun to watch.

Some missionaries are so fanatic that even death will not make them shut up about their faith.

Walriders are a type of night hag who travel from England to "ride" German men (and women) at night.

The "emergency hook" is a powerful tool for magical transportation - but nothing comes without a price.

I have nothing against modern as such.

But those people who are really into Odin creep me out.

A question to my readers:

Can anyone tell me how much the 2011 edition of the "Dizionario dei luoghi fantastici" by Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi has expanded in comparison to the English-language "The Dictionary of Imaginary Places" from 1999?

Because I am wondering whether I should try to hunt that edition down.

I kinda wish the #InternetArchive had a filter for "the digital scan still has the original cover".

Because many of these 19th century books had amazing cover illustrations, especially if they were from the #ArtNouveau era. But unfortunately, the binding of most of the books that were digitized was eventually replaced entirely, and the covers were lost to history.

I am rather mystified by all those Americans who believe that a victory will somehow cause Americans to rise up, overthrow the corrupt system, and install a Glorious Socialist Utopia.

A far more likely result is that most white liberals will hunker down and try to get on with their lives while the country gets more and more oppressive while marginalized communities try to fight for their survival like they have already done for decades.

Seriously, I see no reason why a fascist takeover of the USA should play out any differently than their counterparts in 20th century Europe. Even if there is an anti-fascist uprising, I don't expect it to be any more successful than they were in the Spanish Civil War.

6/6 Have you queried agents for traditional publishing? How did it go?

Nope, never. For one thing, my books are in a rather obscure niche which likely doesn't fit well into the publishing schemes of publishing houses.

But more importantly, publishers usually insist on pesky things like "exclusive rights", which runs counter to my intention of releasing all my translations under a Zero license.

The Venetians knew how to find the riches of the German mountain ranges.

A lot of rock formations in Germany were the direct result of blasphemy - and the resulting divine punishment.
