a snippet for your weekend delectation

Mostly I don’t post quotes from works in progress because I have trouble picking good ones that aren’t also full of spoilers. But this, the final paragraph of tonight’s work, entertains me:

Of course, there was the minor problem of the Green Hell being one of the deadliest regions on earth. But my interest was, that evening, still academic; my purpose in coming to Bayembe was to study the dragons of their arid plains. Moulish swamp-wyrms were a minor note — in much the same way that a fisherman’s lure is a minor note in the world of a fish.

Isabella: still fun to write.
