Chapter Two of A Figure from the Common Lot ended this week, with the culmination of Ebrach’s séance. On Monday, a poem, “Oracle”; Tuesday, “The Immortal Lake”, linked to its sequel. On Wednesday, the short story “Please Help” continued, as Milton finished his errand, having formed, in his short acquaintance with her, an attachment to a woman whose name he doesn’t know. On Thursday, the weekly installment of La Catastrophe de la Martinique, now past the preface, and into Hess’s interviews with witnesses.
On Friday, another segment of The Totem-Maker: “Jealousy”, in which the character tells an unhappy fortune. Saturday, a stand-alone rerun of Hammersmith, Chapter Six, “Mossbunker’s Castle”.
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.
