I think the time has come to embalm these stories and commit them to the museum of the written word.
I beg you, though, to bear in mind that these stories are meant not at all to be read silently.
Try reading them aloud, especially before a good campfire, and see if the mummies do not escape their wrappings and walk about in the firelight, as strange and beautiful as when first they came to me.

A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life".
He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama.
Fluent in several languages, he has translated his novel "Rats Live on no Evil Star" into French ("Palindrome") and Spanish ("Palíndromo").
He also is a professional musician who composes, sings, and plays several instruments, though not usually at the same time.
