My Blog Week: Dec 24 to Dec 30 All the Latest from Torsade!






“Are You Merry and Bright” concluded on Christmas Eve, with a business-like resolution for Dexter and Mabel. Sunday’s installment of A Figure from the Common Lot: Imprisoned (part seven), recounts Honoré’s visit to Paris with his father; and their last falling-out. Tuesday’s “Bad Counsel”, has Andrée taking up with Buel, at the parking lot. On Wednesday, a new sample from “The Totem-Maker”; Thursday, a poem, “The Marigold Bowl”, Friday, the weekly edition of “Are You Haunted”, in which Powell lunches with a Drybrook trustee, is hired, formally, as caretaker, and gets sent up Mill Road with the scavenged makings of a household. An essay, new in the Adventures in Research series, features clippings on coded behaviors of the Ku Klux Klan.


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.
