[quote=“jason, post:5, topic:747”]Actually, by chance, I wound up reading it, aloud (as has become my wont of late), at night, in the darkness between Holy Saturday and Easter morning. Which seemed very appropriate.[/quote]j
From now on, instead of waving my hands trying to get someone to understand just [i]how[/i] deep a proper oral tradition plumbs, I can just tell them to read [i]The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun[/i] instead.
This more than satisfies me. At last I can release my sphincter. :-X ;D
In fact, I’ve personally used it to identify and/or bring people up to speed on the value and purpose of storyjamming. Using it in this way (and the way you suggest) may make it waaaaay easier to put together a group in your area, because they don’t have to identify themselves ‘as gamers’ - if they love the implications of the book, they’ll jam story great, and if they don’t, you likely don’t want them anyway. Anway, if that book didn’t do it for Giuli, I don’t know what will!
In fact, I wonder how many Martin Prechtel fans live in Pittsburgh…hmm…find the storyjammers! Maybe you’ll have to court them, like in the story…!
[EDIT: (Now I just have to get 'im to read Wisdom Sits in Places, by Keith Basso, the book on apache mythmapping…)]
