“Soul-Photos” / Memorable Fancies #1462

[“…the chance to buy a picture of your own soul.” – Stephen Burn (re public confusion about X-ray machines in the 1890s)]

“Photos of your soul, sign up now! It’s right there – just behind the pineal gland. See? My X-ray camera needs only a few seconds to capture it on film, for your loved ones to remember you by, y’know? Now and after you’re gone, too.

“And my price is a bargain for a photo of your own soul, to show your family your quiet virtues, your habits of love in spite of all that crap they say about you behind your back, y’know?”     <END>

[The writer at the Great Falls Book Festival, publicizing his third novel, Try Try Again.]
