June 6, 2023, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a lost book (or many). What is the book’s significance? Who lost it, or who found it? How does this element fit into a poem, memory, or a specific genre? Go where the prompt leads!
I love reading. As a kid, I had a membership of the British Council Library. I discovered many writers here, like Victor Canning. I was instantly hooked on his trilogy about King Arthur, The Crimson Chalice. The library had only the first two books of the series, and the last one was missing!
I looked for this book repeatedly but didn’t find it for years. It was only when I was in America that I found a used copy of this trilogy on Amazon. I finally read the last book that was lost to me for almost 45-48 years.
Word count; 99
( For anyone interested, the books were ; The Crimson Chalice, The Circle of Gods,and The immortal wound )
