Daily Lafferty - # 5

'Not entirely unpleasant, not so to a man with a strong and traveled nose, not really repugnant; but stark, tall, penetrating, slavering, rampant, murderous, challenging, of a grave-like putridity, of a life-terminal gagging, was the odor, the strong stench that began to pervade the climb on Giri Mountain.  There was a person here making himself known.  It was Riksino, the cave-bear, the musk-bear, the lord of this middle-mountain.  He was at home and he had his flag out.'

-R. A. Lafferty, 'Frog On the Mountain' (1970)
