I think the time has come to embalm these stories and commit them to the museum of the written word.
I beg you, though, to bear in mind that these stories are meant not at all to be read silently.
Try reading them aloud, especially before a good campfire, and see if the mummies do not escape their wrappings and walk about in the firelight, as strange and beautiful as when first they came to me.
