Mermaid Discussion Post

As requested, here is your more-or-less official discussion thread for The Mermaid’s Madness [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy].

Because my blog mirrors to different places, I’d suggest going either to LiveJournal or http://www.jimchines.com/2009/10/mermaid-discussion-post/ for the liveliest discussion.

Spoilers ahoy, obviously.

If you haven’t read the book and don’t want to know what happens, stay the heck out of the comments.  Otherwise, all discussion, speculation, and questions* are welcome.


*I might even answer some of ‘em!

She's actually an alternate universe Buffy, and my three princesses are secretly vampires!

Oh, wow, so cool! But then on page 147, paragraph four, you have her saying that she doesn't believe in vampires and also that she hates the mall! And this clearly conflicts with Buffy S2e10, in which Angel explains that vampires disintegrate when they are immersed in water.

(LOL, Glen keeps insisting this is the case. I might just have to write a story based on that premise...Mermaids and vampires...mmmm...)

PS I am totally buying MM this weekend. I am working on buying and reading and reviewing my friends' books in a timely enough fashion to be of some help.

Ah, but I never said the other princesses go in the water, only the Buffy-mermaid!

You know, there were some vampire myths that said they couldn't cross running water. Glen might be on to something here...

(Check out the video parody I recommended to Jim, down below... a parodist has already considered the possibility, seems like...)

Speaking of mermaids and vampires, check out nigahiga's "Movies In Minutes: Twilight," at 1.28, for Parody!Bella's conclusions about Edward, here
