Subject: (urth) STEW Date: Thu, 21 Aug 2003 00:30:15 -0400 I have just finished reading (in small doses) Dianna Wynne Jones's -Tough Guide to Fantasyland- which should probably be required for anyone who wishes to set a book there. A lot of it made me smile but one thing that made me LOL nearly every time was her frequent references to STEW (always in small caps, but I'll spare you from here on). I can't actually remember anything that people in the Sun books ate, except for the fishes Mucor charms up, but I suppose there are the usual numbers of hapless small animals spitted over campfires. And I really don't want to go back to check. Has anyone been obsesssive enough to remember meals? (To amuse you from DWJ: "The thoughtful Tourist might like to pause here and consider, since Animals are so rare, what exactly is the meat that the Management puts in its Stew.") -alga --
