The Chivalry of Fame

The Chivalry of Fame

posted Thursday, 13 May 2010

This year, I was challenged by another writer to a Duel of Fame. You may find details of it by a careful or lucky search of a world that does not really exist: the Internet.

To cut a long story short, it has transpired that whoever of us becomes most famous in 50 years’ time wins the Duel. There are some Rules of Engagement including the formal yardstick by which to measure Fame. Another particularly interesting Rule is: “In the event of neither participant becoming famous, the Duel is deemed Null Immortalis.”

One certainty: in 50 years any fame, sadly, for me is Posthumous.

Or, better, Retrocausal?

Or, even better, Nemonymous. Forever.
