My Blog Week: Oct 15 to Oct 21

A black cat, nicknamed Nortie, who serves as Torsade's site ambassador.

All the Latest from Torsade!












This week began with A Figure from the Common Lot, “Battlefront”, part three, in which Honoré is taken up by Tweedloe, and given an assignment. The fifth short story in the Tourmaline series, “Promoted to Exile” concluded, with Herward taking responsibility for Mary Wainwright. “The Bog” had its fifth entry, with Laurel deciding to host her first Thanksgiving, and an unexpected visitor at the campsite. (This link now points to the Short Stories page, reflecting updates to the “Bog” posts.) “It Spoke of Its Broken Bones” was featured Thursday, with a link to Mystery Plays, where the poem can be found. “Are You Alienated” had its seventh entry, in which Minta agrees to do a job of research for Dr. Slater, and gets news from Quentin. “Night Bird”, a poem from The Poor Belabored Beast, was featured on Friday. Finally, “The Legend of the Pale Knight”, the fourth story arc in the Folly series, had its debut Saturday, with a phone call from a pub.
Photos on my posts usually have a link to related information, sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about clicking links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
