My Blog Week: Dec 10 to Dec 16

My Blog Week: Dec 10 to Dec 16All the Latest from Torsade!










In this week’s installment of A Figure from the Common Lot, Imprisoned (part four), Honoré takes riding lessons. A poem on Monday, “Heavenward”. Tuesday, an essay in the “On Taste” series, moving into the question of how much we can know of our own tastes when our bases of comparison are limited by others. The short story, “The Bog” (see Short Stories page), concluded this week, with Laurel hosting the Thanksgiving she’d, for pride’s sake, invited her sister’s family to; “Bad Counsel” continued, with Leo explaining to Andrée his investing secret. In the novella, Are You Haunted, Powell is enlisted by Guy to do what he’d thought he wanted — spend the night inside the Drybrook house. The sixth episode in the “Legend of the Pale Knight” arc of the Folly series, “The Spectre Knows”, has the guest telling, in poetry and prose, how a serious spectral investigation works, circa 1934. 
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.
