Denver and stories

Sitting here watching the snow, I'm reminded of two stories: "24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai" by Zelazny, and "Man Mountain Gentian" by Howard Waldrop. I believe there are several of the Hokusai prints that involve snow and Fuji, though it's too cloudy here in Denver to see the mountains. I have no idea why I've been thinking of the Waldrop story. Perhaps the subject of "telekinetic sumo wrestlers", the line "Try not to think of the white horse" and the quote "Hooves?" are linking together with the snow for some reason.

I think I have these stories in books that I left behind at the house when I went off to college. I'll have to check out the old garage room (now a storage room) and see if there's anything left.
