Transcript 15 Turn aside in revulsions? Drop to the floor, gibbering? I only know that they set my Imagination working, and stories evolved. Somehow each garish picture managed to relate Itself to a story-idea I'd been thinking about for a long while. Bach lurid vision opened a door to my unconscious mind. From the potted flower-women I got "Dr. Adams' Garden of Evil," a tale poking fun at Playboy-type magazines. The bald man staring at the egg cracking from within became a story of modern covens in which witches' familiars are hatched from eggs. Exploding Luna led to "Deadly Moon," a twisty tale of meteors and pseudo-science based on Hans Bellamy's book. Moons. Myths and Man, and in which the moon-blasts are warnings frora a space-traveling alien race. But also, t£*r c<nM* -/nv^rn- in searching for other reasons for the moon breaking up, I conc.ir.d m lone..t .ei.„cr.„ta.y n^Th. Wanderer. The two-headed sea serpent recalled to my mind a long novel of Fafhrd and the Mouser which I'd tried to write — and botched — thirty years earlier. The outrageously crazy picture tempted me to try again, and I produced the novela"Scylla's Daughter," which in turn became the core of my first sword-and sorcery novel, The Swords of Lankhmar.
