“There’s more than one fish in the sea,” so the saying goes. For Sula this is certainly true, for she lives in an ocean of diverse creatures from tiny to colossal, from gentle to aggressive. Some being so dangerous they seek to make her part of their daily diet. Only the unimaginable and bizarre circumstances of her conception make her existence even possible in this harsh world. This diversity and variety add delight and adventure to her charmed life until she becomes of age and realizes that every creature in her vast world has a compliment - a mate - with which they can produce little ones of their kind. That is, every creature but her. Since they all come from a mating pair, where is she to find the pair that produced her? Her quest leads to adventures and discoveries both delightful and frightening, until it eventually leads her to her mate - her compliment - in a love story to rival the classics as her life unfolds.

There is magic in the world, that brings us happiness and laughter. The magic in our smiles, that makes another smile back. The magic we share, when we see a rainbow in the sky. The brightness of colors and its endless beauty. We wonder where does it come from, where does it go? The magic of believing so much in your dream and your dream finally comes true. Never stop believing in yourself. Your dreams, or in the love and magic of others. Because you and I are where magic comes from. The unique greatness in our minds and hearts that we need to share. Those great gifts that come from Almighty God. Open your heart and you will see just as well as beauty, there is magic in you and magic in me.

Captain Hook and the Mermaid

Mermaid tails came in beautiful colors like fish, but we didn't have scales, just a
thick but velvety skin. "You're starting to sound like you would like vile things
done to you," he said. "Be careful what you wish for." "No! But I'm not a fish. Why

"Be careful, sweet," he said, with a flash of a grin that made me realize just how handsome he could be. "It's dangerous to feel too much in Never Land.” When I took Peter’s hand and flew with him to Never Land, escaping the fate of my overworked peasant mother, I thought it was a dream, but all I found was a cursed land. Peter expected me to tell stories and mend clothes all day like I was his mother, and at night, he cried out with nightmares. In Never Land, no one really grows up. At least, not on land. With my first womanly thought, I turned into a mermaid and Peter forgot my name. Yearning to escape, I was caught by the most dangerous man on the island—the very grown up, cruel pirate Captain Hook. I’m trapped in his chambers, and he makes me a very naughty bargain—but how long before that bargain becomes something more? Something that might destroy the secret that holds Never Land together and frees two lonely hearts? Captain Hook and the Mermaid is a fairy tale retelling for those who like an adorable happily ever after with a side of serious steaminess!

Most of the 17 essays were selected from presentations at a symposium some two decades ago, the proceedings of which are published in Hungarian in a 2001 second edition, or at a 1989 international conference in Budapest. They discuss such topics as orgy accusations in the middle ages, the mermaid-folklore in fiction, and the obscene humor of an Asian storyteller. There is no index. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
