Mrs. Mud’s brush with Death by Troy Morash is now available at Cabinet des Fées. This story continues the adventures of Mrs. Mud and her husband. The character first appeared in the story The Old Muds in Fables back in Spring 2002. The second story: Mrs. Mud and her Basket of Apples can be read in The Summerset Review and was published in winter 2003.
Mrs. Mud’s brush with Death was first titled Mrs. Mud's First Death. The reason being that there are other times that she dies and has experiences of the afterlife. The character is the epitome of exaggeration not unlike Lewis Carrol's Queen of Hearts. Mrs. Mud lives in an extreme state and experiences extreme emotions which are not to her advantage.
