The book cover graphic shows up at the review, but not here at DW.

And now I can as well. I wonder what changed.

Just out of curiosity, can you see the photos at this post of mine? Because I can see those, but someone else said she couldn't.

Annoying. So much for that theory. I suspect it's because the photo is hosted at somewhere that requires a login.

No photos in your DW post or LJ post for me, either

"1: Grace and Icy Blue are real, but Auben and Kasim’s uncle is pretty sure that they’re just fictions invented by the elite to keep the sheeple in line."

I can't really tell how annoying this guy is because I don't know how clearly obvious magic and the supernatural are in this world, aside from the twins thing (and that could probably be explained in terms of psychology and expectations). Grace and Icy Blue may be real, but does the average person have any proof of their existence beyond the shaggy dog story level? Or do the street sweepers stay busy tidying away the petrified or inside out bodies of people who have offended the Gods, and there are wizards making cheeses fly on little Kraft wings for people's amusement in the town square?

Or alternatively, the supernatural is real, but this has just caused an entire cottage industry of people making up fake divinities for the usual con-person purposes, so there is no better than a one-in-seven chance any given religion is anything more than a cabal of unethical wizards.

That's an interesting idea: after all, how do you distinguish a miracle created by magic from one created by divine power? Of course, it gets even more complicated in places like Pratchett's Diskworld, where enough people believing in the fake Gods is likely to make them real.
