Once upon a time there was a pair of brothers who lived in Hesse, Germany. The brothers were quite attached to each other and equally ambitious. Together they started their careers as academics, realising soon that it needs more to become immortal. So they started writing books. But not just any books. They travelled through Hesse and wrote down the stories, that people told them. Word for word. At least that is what they wanted us to believe. The truth is still hidden somewhere in a former century, lost to us forever. But is it really?
