Farewell, Gentle Yolanda

This article about the delicate manner in which the writers of the new television show “Sleepy Hollow” handle their 18th century hero trapped in modern day America tickled me, in part because I have written a three-part fantasy series set in the same era (albeit in Russia). I have enjoyed watching this show, although, like “Gilligan’s Island,” it always leaves me with a lot of questions. Some of the questions are even the same, as in “how come an outfit worn that long through that many unfortunate adventures doesn’t repulse everyone around it?” It’s a tough balance between wordy, ornate speech and moving the plot along while staying true to the characters.
