Truth like Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and depending on what your vision of reality is –the story you are about to read is true -or at least as true as any of the more than 500 Dime Novels written by or about William F. Cody --- also known as Buffalo Bill. Americas first International Media Star.
Certain names and places have been changed to protect the guilty as well as the innocent and any similarity to persons living or dead is purely coincidental because a kaleidoscope when continually rotated as in the case of a DIME NOVEL IN PROGRESS—will inevitably reflect an image of something or someone that appears to be REAL. A VIRTUAL IMPOSSIBILITY.
The Reality of The Kaleidoscope is that it has no counterpart in Black and White Worlds. You are welcome to exercise you imagination and make comparisons but composite creatures and fictional characters have a life of their own.
“fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats”.
Quotation by Richard Bach in ILLUSIONS
