Publication history:


Chapter 10 of Majipoor Chronicles. I don't know of any other publication.

In Lord Valentine's Castle, Valentine mentions an incident in which he and his brother in their youth had met a fortune-telling witch. After a night of intimate gymnastics, she read their futures in the pingla-seeds and pronounced that both would someday be king. This confused them greatly, and only many years later did the truth become apparent.
