LJ HOLMES PRESENTS: A FORK IN THE ROAD

Okay, I don't believe in things

that go Bump In The Night, or reek of

FANTASY.

I mean seriously, take

Red Riding Hood. How butt ugly must her

Grandma have been for Red not to see that

wasn't her Gramma the minute she entered the cottage? Was Red's eyesight, despite being a little kid,

that bad? And if it was, why would her parents allow her to go skipping off into

the woods with a known wolf on the

prowl?

My friend Mary Compton, is a really, really

talented writer, or she would be if she'd just write about believable things. She's taken to writing



ADULT

FAIRY

TALES!

Adult Fairy Tales...yeah, she IS selling her stories, but just to mediocre

fantasy magazines. Not anywhere the

REAL world would be interested in! She gives them to me to read, but honestly,

I hide them. Can you imagine if my friends saw them? Give me a good old copy of

COMPUTERS I LONG TO

BYTE. At least if my buds see THAT magazine in my place, they won't ridicule me.

But Mary is always trying to pawn her latest story on me, forcing me to have

to cross my fingers and

lie through my teeth when she asked if I've read them. It is just sooo


exhausting.

Today I am hoping our

trip into the Country for a leisurely

picnic I'll finally convince her she needs to start writing stuff that will...well...

sell...everywhere!

Hang on a sec.

What's this? There's a fork in the road. I can just about see it through all the

dust. Don't remember this stretch looking like this, and hey!

The sun's wrong. What the

devil's going on here?
