Cartoon of the Week: Croatoan





In Sunday’s A Figure from the Common Lot: The House of Gremot (part four), Honoré recalls his reunion with his true wife, and learns something of the false one. Monday, a poem, “Friendly Maude McKinley”; Tuesday, the start of a new novella, Celebrated: the story of a happenstantial plagiarist. Wednesday, the ninth episode of The Folly‘s German Spy arc, with Agnes redeemed from prison for the purpose of undercover work, trained to target Lord Atherleigh. Thursday, the latest segment of Catastrophe, a local newspaper’s account of Saint-Pierre’s disaster from the viewpoint of Fort-de-France’s safer residents. Friday, a fresh Assorted Opinions, “Uneasily Enthused”, on the topic of punctuation. Friday also, the twenty-seventh Hammersmith; Saturday, the twenty-eight. This coming week, a fresh chapter of Hammersmith, “Night Maneuvers”, debuts Friday.
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.
