I think agra aska might be a real word. At least both parts are real words I believe. The old Greeks (at least those who hung out in Turkey) used to go to the Agra when they wanted to blow some cash and look at the women and wear purple turbans and eat parrot brains and that sort of thing. Or maybe I am wrong. It is also a city in India which I vaguely recall having visited (there was a bear on the side of the road). I am almost sure that Aska is a Sanskrit word, though I dont have my dictionaries here. Probably the transliteration would be ascha though.

Sorry for butting in............................

It was originally short for

but of course that would have made it
agara aska ! :-?

Yes, Brendan, I originally mispelled Niagara as Niagra (in 1984 when AA was first written)! Shame on me.

I wonder if anyone else has 'invented' or 'exhumed' words - or misspelled / misused words in finished printed products!?

Ummm. I know someone who has, but I will refrain from naming names in order to protect the guilty.

Just 'published' part 3 of 'Yesterfang'.


It is an amazing word and concept. I've got it for real in an ancient dictionary.

If writers are about words, then we should peignoir them.

I did. It was just too late at night when I saw it to be able to transmit enough for my brain to transmit enough signals to my hands to write something truly unmeaningful.

All is for the pest in the pest of all possible worlds.

A quote from today's Sutton Hoo episode of Yesterfang.

This novel's become a quest for the pest!
Extract from today's episode 25:

...we shall call it our quest for the pest – no longer a quest for the past, not a search for lost time nor a remembrance of things past, because that stuff’s old hat, because the true past, once accomplished, once lived, once forgotten, is a past that’s marched too far for any quest to reach. So we gradually change the past, by changing the purpose of the quest itself. With this success in neutralising the past with altered goals beyond its own reach, we now seek the pest instead, the pest we should always have sought if it had not been for the similar words confusing us ... so that we can then eventually quench the pest’s poison and stymie its eternally foreseeable ability to bleed mankind dry with its cancers and other diseases of mind and body [...] and we need to gather forces from the dark imaginations of world literature to work with us as counter-spies or clandestine triple bluffs and so forth against the pest that already believes it has got them in its own pocket working against us!

As this thread is accessed from other portals, I should note here my phrase of:
the parthenogenesis of reality - as a concept regarding artifice and 'magic fiction' as broached on the fiction as religion thread:

PS: Please tell me if you think 'Yesterfang' is now finished:

Like 'Weirdtongue', this is an attempt at magic fiction.

For those reading it, I have just resumed writing YESTERFANG during a hiatus in writing THE APOCRYFAN.
