Cartoon of the Week: Pizza Bacon Cheeseburger, Anyone?





Readers, this week saw the end of two ongoing features of Torsade: the novel Inimical, and novella “Are You Loveable“, both available now as full reads on their respective pages. Their slots will be filled by a variety of new things: short stories, flash fiction, a translated work from the public domain, La Catastrophe de la Martiniquereporter Jean Hess’s account of the 1902 Mt. Pelée eruption; and a new non-fiction page, Assorted Opinions, where I juxtapose topics at random. 





Sunday’s post, A Figure from the Common Lot: The House of Everard (part two), recounted Richard’s errand on behalf of his father, in reclaiming Joab from riverboat captain Gideon Haws. The first Inimical, on Monday, wound up Malcolm-Webb’s storyline, and touched base with Baines, Greta, and Van Nest. The Folly returned, with “The Watchman”, a poem that continued the German Spy arc; the shade of Krug finding its bearings. On Wednesday, another poem, “The Mind’s Eye”; on Thursday, the final episode of Inimical. Here Van Nest exercises reason, and still leaves his protégé dissatisfied. 
Friday’s “Are You Loveable” brought the story back, through the innocent Oland Coleman’s conviction, to Mulhall’s romancing of Paulette. On Saturday, the third of a three-part Yoharie segment went up, in which Hibbler asserts authority, and Trevor pushes back.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
