I jokingly opined that Graves must have dropped the manuscript on the way to the post box to send to his publisher, picked up the chapters in random order and just sent them that way, as The Will Of The Goddess.  This rumour got around the local pagan community and got back to me as Gospel Truth [if that expression is usable in this context].  This is how Urban Legends are born!
