My Blog Week: April 22 to April 28

Cartoon of the Week: from Ghouls, “Complaint Department”, Grudgerton Cemetery





A Figure from the Common Lot, Book Two, Chapter Two, section ii, concluded this week, with the Everard family’s sad history reaching one of its culminations. On Monday, “Explication”, a new poem; Tuesday a new segment of Yoharie, in which Trevor explains to Giarma and Val why his favorite book can’t be made into a movie. Wednesday, a short story began, “Please Help”, with a shady collector for charity caught in a bad coincidence. Thursday, I posted another portion of the preface to La Catastrophe de la Martinique, and findings of some supporting research. Friday inaugurated Assorted Opinions, thoughts of mine expanded from notebook jottings, this week’s on the question of unnecessary words; and why are some annoyed by the news-term lede? Saturday, another poem, “And Still”.
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.
