Re: Talking to Stones by Joel Doonan

After all those stories you've read about abandoned cities -- this story tells you what happened to the Little People who did all the work after their masters decide to leave. (We must leave aside Bradbury and Clark stories, where the perfect mechanical cities (or Enchanted Villages) soldier on, waiting for someone to serve...)

Unfortunately, the 'created' have little chance for survival after having been kept in ignorance for untold generations. All they have left is hope, and vague legends of perfect Other Places. (see also "Logan's Run"...)

Many people have heard the Stones talking. However, most say that they can be hard to understand, especially Keef and Bill. (Mick speaks fairly clearly.) ;D

Re: Talking to Stones by Joel Doonan

of course the story had a lot in common with the hebrews leaving egypt. the stones were probably like the burning bush and the other signs.


Burning Bush? That kind of talk will have Homeland Security knocking on your door (with a battering ram).
