Cartoon of the Week: May Ahab a Moment of Your Time






This week began on Monday with “Sacred Science”, the fifth poem in the Eight series, offering some cultish lore. In Tuesday’s Sequence of Events, the end of chapter eight, with a meeting in hints, possibly misconstruals, between Phillip and Godshaw. On Wednesday, “Dougal Inskip’s Lonely Vigil”, the seventh Tattersby of The Folly, in which the unrequited neighbor meets a friendly ghost. Thursday’s Catastrophe, has Hess telling more of the racial divide that plagues Martinique. On Friday, a new episode from The Totem-Maker, bringing chapter four to an end, with the character’s feared loss of status. And on Saturday, “Edwytha’s Plait”, the eighth Tattersby. Here de Clieux learns the scope of Miss Harvey’s channeling powers.
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.
