I beseech Nothoth Yamon, denizen of abyssal pylons
Lift upon wings of fire the Worm to an invisible throne in the sky
Usher forth the age of Xethogga
Uuah! Uuah-Xethogga!It is done!
Just thought I'd let you know I posted a somewhat long review of this story over on my blog: http://scientificallybookish.blogspot.com/2011/01/ankor-sabat.htmlI gave it a middling grade, but I actually quite liked the story aside from the ending. I'm hoping I've not offended you with this maybe the fact I gave James Patrick Kelley the same grade as you a few times would encourage you. Point is, I can be a little harsh, but I liked your writing and hope to see more of it in well-paid markets sometime soon.
