There are four epic poems in microfunding: "Fiorenza and the Witch-Son
" features Fiorenza the Italian herbalist musing about social roles and gender dynamics, at a time when there is NOT a major preternatural crisis going on. "Enki's Messengers
" is essentially a sidebar to the Sumerian myth "The Descent of Inanna," focusing on the kurgarra
and the galatur
created by Enki. "Igor's Creature
" is a mix of horror and science fiction with a large helping of sociology and a wry twist of humor. The epic poem "A Periodic Table of Elementals
" is ahead of production.
