My Blog Week: Nov 12 to Nov 18

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

All the Latest from Torsade!












The week began with A Figure from the Common Lot: Battlefront, this time seguing to section two of chapter one, “Imprisoned”. Honoré, having for Clotilde’s sake placed himself in the hands of the Prussians, has no proof to persuade them to release him. A new entry in the Haunt of Thieves poem-story, “Charity”, takes Gafeidda into the refugee camp, where he wishes to escape the old man and the Water Woman. A new short story, “Bad Counsel” began this week, telling life from Andrée’s point of view — a twenty-six year old woman who finds her future bleak. “Are You Alienated” concluded, with a confrontation on a bridge, and Minta’s semi-forgiveness of Art now she understands him better. Hammersmith is back, Vic given a new task by Mossbunker, and meeting an alleged Count. Friday a sampling went up from the novel-within-a-novel, The Totem-Maker. Finally, a novella/short novel in the Are You series, that like Alienated, ran in rough-draft form on this blog a couple of years ago. “Are You Haunted” is a ghost story, and a war story, and ultimately, a reconciliation story. 
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.
