Hey Gauntleteers, it’s time to crowdsource the miscellany for Codex – Bone. This miscellany is called “Three Dozen Things That Are Terribly Wrong with These Bones.” Submissions need to be a single sentence, or 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue). We’re looking for evocative things; the purpose of the miscellany is to inspire the reader.
Here are some examples:
“Radiocarbon dating placed the vertebrae at the end of the Ice Age, removing the possibility of a sauropod. Barring evidence of an ancient giraffe population in Ontario, this may be a previously undiscovered species.”
“Damn it, I know what spongy bone looks like, and this isn’t it! This was a hive.”
“The crew remain distressed by the local flora, claiming to see human remains in every fallen branch. I confess the resemblance grows harder to ignore. I myself found a perfectly formed jawbone, and can find no carving marks upon it.”
P.S. If you want to be credited as something other than your G+ name, let me know!
