Dario Rivarossa: "Beerie Tales"

Dario Rivarossa

Here's yet another image by Dario Rivarossa that regular readers have seen before, and he quotes my story:
[Wife:] "Show me the label. . . . Shoggoth's Old Peculiar. . . . It's Irish. See the leprechauns!"

[Husband:] "Leprechauns? . . . Aren't those horns and hooves? These aren't leprechauns. They're satyrs."

- Horace Jeffery Hodges, "The Bottomless Bottle of Beer," in Emanations: Second Sight, pages 120-121
Dario quotes from the short story version, but the novella version doesn't differ on the details given above. If these exciting lines prick your curiosity, tickle your fancy, and stimulate your desire for great literature, you can still settle for less by accessing this "explosion in a cesspool" in its novella version for a preview here.

To purchase, go here.

Hmm, the BBB is becoming like the "one B" (the Bible) in its Greek versions in the first centuries AD: Which text had been inspired by God, the shorter or the longer version? The Endless Enigmas of Exegesis.

Perhaps it's like the Qur'an, written and rewritten by God Himself!

. . . or the Vedas, that have not been written by anybody?

I've heard that somewhere . . .
