Here you will find not only the three Emmie Reese Mystery short stories—The Birth of M.E. Meegs, Hidden Booty, and Psi no more—but also her unique newspaper reportage, her pioneering foray into the world of the literary magazine, and, most vitally, the opening novella of her greatest work of all.
Babes at Sea is the first installment of what Meegs promises will be the crowning glory of her nascent, yet universally acclaimed, career: the great novaplex, Byblos Foretold. This groundbreaking chef d’œuvre is not simply a revolutionary new form—though it is that—but also a work of rarest distinction.
What a treat lies in store for those discerning souls wise enough to get their hands on this gem of a volume!

M.E. Meegs began writing epic poetry while still in the cradle, though her first real recognition came only after the completion of her dramatic tragedy, Dolly’s Fourth, and Final, Crusade. Written when she was five, it chronicles the midnight adventure of a favorite doll, which ended sadly in the jaws of a neighbor’s mastiff.
She lives now in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, with a first-class typewriter and a middling husband who will soon be in need of a food taster if he doesn’t begin showing a little more appreciation for her literary efforts.
A truly loving soul, she harbors neither children nor pets—fearing the temptation to make sacrifices of them to her tetchy muse might prove irresistible. She does, however, heartily enjoy the company of her devotees, so please do stop by her virtual home at: MEMeegs.com
