Cartoon of the Week: American Noir






A new section of A Figure from the Common Lot’s chapter two began this week: “Gone Before”, in which Ebrach, having come to raise the spirit of Micah Everard, sets to work. On Monday, a poem, “Demimonde”; Tuesday, more of the The Totem-Maker, “Jealousy”, the character suffering under orders to serve Mumas, while showing a dangerous gift for enterprise. On Wednesday, part two of the short story “Please Help”, bringing Milton fully into the trap, sent to run an errand on behalf of the three strangers. Thursday, I posted the third (translated) part of Jean Hess’s La Catastrophe de la Martinique, where he talks about travel in the Caribbean of 1902, unrest in Haiti; the comforts of French ships. Friday, I put up a new Assorted Opinions, with some garden advice and an unblocking exercise for poets. And Saturday, “A Chain”, the latest in The German Spy arc of the Folly…some guiding hand means to unite the dead Tattersbys, Atherleigh and his brother Simon, thus to unveil movements behind the scenes.
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.
