The Moon Pool continues, as Yolara and Larry enter into verbal combat, interrogate each other, and practice the deadly martial art of Kung Flirt.
A Dialogue of Comfort against Tribulation continues. It’s the next day, and Vincent has just heard some bad news.
This chapter seems to be less of a satire on Henry VIII’s England and more a straight discussion of Eastern Europe’s main worry at that time. It includes a lot of discussion about the Ottoman Empire and Islam — some of which sounds very familiar — as well as descriptions of people’s reactions to the invasion threat — some of which also seem familiar.
An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine continues, with a section on Arian Goths. (No, not the black lipstick kind!)
Some of the authors I’ve enjoyed reading over here, are going to get attention over on Librivox in the next few months. So keep an eye out!
There are two J.M. Falkner projects coming up: the children’s historical adventure Moonfleet, and the second version available on the Net of The Lost Stradivarius, a creepy Victorian tale.
Another upcoming project is The Film Mystery by Arthur B. Reeve, a full length Craig Kennedy novel written during the early days of the silver screen. You movie buffs will love it!
