The House of Dead Whores Deleted by author

Post  Jaqhama on Wed Oct 15, 2008 7:08 am

Good day everyone...

I've been forced to delete this story as I've offered it for a print publication and they insist that it not appear in any free legal form on the internet.

Thanks for the reads and nice comments.

Regards: Jaq.

I have to admit, that's a bit chilling.
I found a small shiver, on completing it. Thank you, Jaqhama.

I utterly love the moment when one realises there is a historical character hidden within a work of fiction (whether they are later made obvious or not). Mixing Jack the Ripper and Frankenstein, now...I'm surprised nobody has come up with it before. It works rather well.

A few people have asked me that of late.
Brian's in the family tree somewhere. I'm just not sure of the exact branch.
He lives in County Durham, wherein lies Castle Lumley, historical home of the Lumley Clan since 1389.
Joanna Lumley, the British TV and film actress is my cousin. She's written a couple of books also.
One day I must do the geneology thing and see where we all are in relation to each other.
Writing certainly seems to run through the whole family. My Auntie, Joyce Stannard, President of the British Pyrenee Mountain Dog Association, has also written a couple of books. (Albeit about her big doggies.)

Cheers: Jaq.

I'm glad you shivered...errr...I mean enjoyed it George.

I like using real or well known fictional characters in my stories.
Had a whole slew of them in the Ripping Yarn tale posted at BG.
I'll have to see what other nefarious people I can slip into future stories.

Warming up in Hobart yet?
Sydney is well on it's way toward a hot summer I think.

Cheers: Jaq.

The sunlight has got warm, but the nights are still cold. The skies have been wonderful.

That information about the Ripping Yarn is yet another reason to look forward to Brass Goggles' reinstatement. Very Happy

Gotta admit, I did guess the nod to the two literary tales involved; but...
This was a great short story!

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Thu Oct 16, 2008 10:45 pm

Thank you for the new tale, Jaqhama! If I may say, I think I liked this one even better than the last. I particularly like your use of the first person narrative, and the immediacy it brings to the story. Top notch work! I look forward to more in this (dare I say it?) vein.

Regards,
Mrs. S.

PS - Brian Lumley was this year's Guest of Honor (along with Mike Mignola) at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland! I got to meet him and attended his lecture. Fascinating!

Ha, ha...vein...very good. Razz

You met Brian, hey?
He gets around doesn't he?

I'm still waiting for my first invitation to be flown overseas and put up at the local Hilton and escorted to a book convention by a dazzling attractive girl on each arm and having caviar served to me in a hot tub with those same two...

Ah, where were we? pirat
