Friday Fictioneers: Rest Now, Sweet Isis

The photo for this week’s Friday Fictioneers is another great one:

Interestingly on my drive in, I was missing Roger Zelazny, so this is my 100-word ode to him.

Set was on a rampage. Again. Horus had been out drinking—He and Anubis slayed the ladies up in the clubs—and upon his return was loudly proclaiming his greatness. Everyone knew the story, but after a few beers, Horus would start to reminisce, blathering on about trouncing Set back in the day. As they continued their eternal argument, Osiris pulled Isis closer, wrapping his wrappings about her. They both shuddered as Ra joined in the revelry, always happy to stoke the fire. Isis closed her eyes and rested against Osiris, wishing they’d spent the money to soundproof the catacombs.

  1. That was fun! When our girls were little and we would read the Greek myths (must have missed this one), we agreed that having gods with powers but who acted like (or worse) than people would NOT be good thing. You just proved the point. 🙂

  2. That’s a great look into the secret lives of Egyptian gods. I’ve seen a couple (including mine) use Greek themes, so it’s nice to see something a bit different.

    1. Hopefully what you found helped? I tend to move toward the obscure sometime, but try to include links in my posts for those who don’t take those trips with me 🙂 Thanks for reading!

    1. That is a great question, Doug. He wrote a book called Creatures of Light and Darkness about Anubis and some of the others that, so many years since I read it an fell in love with it, that he just might have 🙂
