And what about all those servants and horses and cooks in 'Sleeping Beauty,' thrust willy-nilly into the next century? "

'But why me? Why my daughter?'

He shrugged. 'Did you never notice, in the twentieth, how legends gather around some people. There is the truth about a man, and then the part truths that gather afterward, and then the myths that follow later yet. A legendary man tends to have legendary sons.
