As you may recall, the way I started rewriting the old stories my friend and I penned in the 1960s was that when I found one particular story missing, I decided I could do a better job now anyway.
That story was one where King lawrence, staying at a sort of 8th century United nations enclave, is seduced by one of the official concubines, a woman he knew from his youth named juliana.
I cannot link you to that original story because, as I say, it is missing. But you can look back at the others in that old series here: Juliana Re-encountered
When Laura and I reconnected in 2006 as I was starting to write the novel, we decided that our old and rather silly name for the stories should stand: Faithful Forever. So as you read on, enjoy yourself with these often rather explicit tales about Lawrence and Juliana, and Josephine and Elerde. They are pure fantasy, no effort to be accurate for the era, and they definitely DIDN'T HAPPEN!
