Stories here should try to evoke a Sense of Wonder, a sense that there is a larger world beyond the one we know. In the world of the Library, these wonders are hidden, but never truly far away. But never forget that this is a wilder world than our own, and it's never entirely safe, either. Tread with care.
This was written on 2012-12-30. A lot of my stuff was written before I joined the library, and just had to be polished up a bit, but this is the first thing I've written from scratch since I joined the site. It is based on two Cherokee stories, "Grandmother Spider Steals the Sun", and "The First Fire", which can both be found in James Mooney's _Myths_of_the_Cherokee_, 1902
Thanks, all. I got the idea for this from the cover of one of my Native American books. It had stylized bear tracks around the edge, and they looked a bit like vacuum tubes to me, so I resolved to write such a story.
This is the book, in case you want to see for yourself how I made such an odd association:
American Indian Myths and Legends (Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)
