Published Posthumously


“Made of Win” was, Lucy decided, her great-uncle’s seminal work of erotic poetry, despite her father’s odd choice of title. Published posthumously, it explored the promise of life after death and the probability of the supernatural. Curiously, her father had published a second (third if you counted the book Frederick had self-published in the 1960s) which developed upon the themes of the first, the subject matter of which included pieces about Lucy despite Frederick having died long before she was born.

She preferred the second volume. The pages of the first were often stuck together.

Is there an 'ick' factor in that last sentence?

What an interesting idea. Having the ability to write a book like that.
