Excerpts from a collection of linked flash fictions centered on the figure of Gisela von Bayern, a Bavarian princess who, in the year 1000, was married off to Hungary where she became the country's first queen. With her husband Saint Stephen I, she christianized large parts of Eastern Europe. After Stephen's death she became Abbess of the convent of Niedernburg near Passau, Germany. Most of the chapters are unpublished but they are available online at http://100daysandnights.tumblr.com with images, including many drawings by my daughter Taffimai (who also created the cover art). As the text proceeds, many additional characters move in and take over the story—just like in real life where control ultimately is an illusion. Since this is a novella in flashes, it doesn't matter where you begin reading it.
