Cartoon of the Week: Alien Life Form






In Sunday’s “The House of Gremot” (part five), Honoré remembers how he came to be Clotilde’s husband; on Monday, a poem, “Now to Steal”. On Tuesday, a new page for the blog, the novel Sequence of Events, and its first post installment, from “A Personal Choice”, the arrival of Stanley Carpenter in pursuit of a niece’s hospitality and a goal of his own. Wednesday, the latest from The Totem-Maker, a change of direction for the character, drawn deeper into rebellion and its consequences. Thursday, the week’s Catastrophe, in which a survivor tells his story. Friday, Hammersmith was back with a new episode, “Night Maneuvers”, featuring a collision between Vic Mack and Mossbunker’s lieutenant. Saturday, another new poem, “The Big House”.
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.
