Aeons ago, before the Days of Plague I attended Expozine, where Boum guided me through the treacherous world of sitting at a table and selling Stuff. It’s a good thing she was there to teach me things or I would definitely have been eaten by the wolves (I was so clueless, I didn’t even know there would be hungry wolves).
The experience has taught me many things about humans and the things they do when there is a table full of books for sale in front of them.
It took me a while to realize that this person was not doing a bit when they put the book to their ear, which raised many questions.
It’s still unclear whether or not the sea paper is a thing, but mermids are 100% real.
