An Outlandish memory May 2, 2015

Scenes from Starz series Outlander episode #113 which aired today are based on events in a short story called “Virgins” which was published in an anthology called Dangerous Women (edited by George R R Martin) in December 2013.

I am particularly fond of that novella, because once upon a time…  (actually it was August 5, 2013) author Diana Gabaldon posted daily lines for “Virgins” and she dedicated them to me.  #ThisOnesForShawnLBird #poetess

Whenever I read the passage, it gives me goosebumps.  What an honour to receive a dedication from an internationally best selling author!  If you want to read the daily line selection, it’s here: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rlp46l

(An added memory is that I purchased my copy of Dangerous Women from The Poisoned Pen in Phoenix that Christmas) 🙂  I like the idea of poetesses being dangerous women, though in fact, no such proof is proffered in the story, beyond Ian’s suppositions in this section. 🙂
