Stuck indoors Saturday as the rain came down, I had little to do but finish a story I had begun earlier in the week. That story, "The Mortification of the Flesh," is now in the queue. As I say in the description, it combines my favorite topics - sex and religion. Sister Lucretia has developed an elaborate theology regarding the redemptive power of pain. It may be a blasphemy, but it does not lie too far from the sadomasochistic heart of Christianity.
And I do hope peregrinf is back online soon. I have not heard from him since the storm ended.
