More on Stichomancy

As mentioned earlier, the story “Miss Mae’s Prayers” by H.R.R. Gorman in Dark Divinations also deals with stichomancy. In this case, it is specifically Biblical. A preacher who is consulted about a passage in the Bible by one of his parishioners is incensed to think a local “witch” is using the Bible to do the Devil’s work. He goes to confront her and finds more than he bargained for.

Again, trying hard to avoid spoilers, that is all I am going to say about the story except it was well-written and worth your read. 🙂

In addition to the articles linked in the earlier post, this site looks like a lot of fun, as it will randomly generate a stichomancy reading for you.

Since I am running so late today, I will close here. Go get your fortune told!
