I’m watching an absurd show on the Discovery Times channel. Some guy is following the path of the holy grail as outlined by Dan Brown in The DaVinci Code. He keeps promising extraordinary revelations, all of which, of course, turn out to be a bunch of bosh.
Has no one heard of the concept of fiction? While I may say that I know my characters so well that I believe I’ll run into them on the street someday, I still know that I’ve made them up. I devoutly hope that no one tries to follow the clues in my books in order to find the treasures that my characters find.
Fiction, people! Fiction! Imagination!
