Kiesha Crowther - The Once and Future Fraud by Kathryn Price NicDhàna


Kiesha Crowther - The Once and Future Fraud by Kathryn Price NicDh�na on BJ Tuininga's TwitWall: "Europeans and Euro-Americans know this myth: it's King Arthur pulling the sword from the stone, it's Harry Potter receiving the letter borne by an owl, it's the ancient European stories, once told around the fire before they had a system of writing, the names of whose heroes most would not recognize but that fantasy authors from Mallory to Rowling have drawn on for their books.

To everyone who was ever a lonely outcast child, outside in the woods with their dog, maybe playing 'cowboys and Indians'... but with no friends to play with; to every child who felt different from their parents and imagined they were adopted; to every delicate child who felt more at home with animals than hard-edged humans; to every mentally unstable and lonely, sensitive soul who sits behind their computer and dreams of a more meaningful existence and membership in a mystical, magical tribe; to everyone who has ever dreamed a phone call out of the blue (or a sword from a stone) would change their life into something spiritual and exotic... indeed, that they would be called on to help save the world... Kiesha's myth taps right into their hearts, their dreams, their souls."
