My Blog Week: Oct 29 to Nov 4

My Blog Week: Oct 29 to Nov 4All the Latest from Torsade!





The week began with the fifth installment of A Figure from the Common Lot: Battlefront, in which Honoré, expelled from the French army’s camp, plods along the road and makes important meetings. “Lewis” is a short story for the eerie time of year, posted complete on my Inimical page. In the twenty-first installment of Hammersmith, “What’s the Game”, Aimee has a chance to quiz Curach.
“On Taste: You and your peers”, concludes the second part of this series on taste as a measurable quantity, as opposed to a nebulous notion. On November 2, two fresh poems: “The Cat Sprang Up”, with a touch of feminism, and “While We Talk”, on dangerous scientific detachment. “Are You Alienated”, part nine, brings John Emmett back on the scene; and in “Authority Weighs In”, part two, Sergeant Herward envies the Ftheorde.
Photos on my posts usually have a link to related information, sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about clicking links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
