My Blog Week: Nov 19 to Nov 25

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: Imprisoned (part one continued), in which Honoré is stalked and assaulted by Baum. A poem, “The Day You Were Born”, part of the TV culture series, speaks of past adventure yarns and casual bigotries. In “The Bog: part eight”, Laurel learns from Dana that the unpleasant Harry Penfold’s fate may be her responsibility. (Post goes to Short Stories page.) In the fourth installment of the poem-story, The Legend of the Pale Knight, “St. Andrew’s Day”, the guest recounts for Virginia and Roscoe a visit he paid to the only living witness of the harbinging figure. Are You Haunted continues, with Powell meeting Isobel Gilshannon and her husband, Dennis Tovey. Finally, “The Lab-Grown Brain Makes a Prose Poem”, is an alphabetical exercise in grammatical random sentences.
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.
