Inverting again, the Nataku & Gokuu frontispiece from Gaiden 2 ch 10. Nataku looks a bit Christlike to my eyes but I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

I've been trolling used bookstores for Brust. Haven't found much Brust but did find a handful of Fu Manchus on Friday, which I ought to read because I never have. I suspect from a fast browse that it's not going to be as much fun as I thought it would be, but we shall see. Later; because next day I stumbled on a real find- two Charles Williams', Descent into Hell and Many Dimensions, both out of print on this side of the Atlantic, at least. Haven't read them in 20-some years and can't remember, again, why I ditched my own copies. So am happily meandering through MD, and 500 Years After, and the Return of Dr. Fu Manchu, and Chinese poems, and this story which is still stuck on the same point as a month ago ie what could Hakkai possibly do to make Gouen think he might be Goujun. Maybe I should just take that scene out now that I've put the subsequent sex scene back in. Maybe I should have a sex scene with Hakkai. Maybe that should prompt Jiip to attack Gouen at which in a flash Gouen understands all and goes away to weep that his brother now prefers screwing a youkai to screwing him...

Maybe I should go back to reading Many Dimensions.
