I love the stories of Moore & O’Neill.


Nemo: The Roses of Berlin is by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill.

It is another adventure with Janni Dakkar, the second Captain Nemo, an offshoot series of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.


Very violent. If this was live action, I’d be watching with my hands in front of my eyes.

Typing with Sausages

Today my fingers seem like sausages rolling around the keyboard. More coffee = less of sending out typos.

"Young Bill seemed especially interested in the seamy lineaments of a fellow Harvard man named Robert Benchley, then, as now, functioning on what might be called the lunatic fringe of dramatic criticism. Seated beside him was a little and extraordinary pretty woman with dark hair, a gentle, apologetic smile, and great reproachful eyes. ‘And that, I suppose,’ said the lad from Emporia, ‘would be Mrs. Benchley.’ ‘So I have always understood,’ I replied crossly, ‘But it is Mrs Parker.’ “

Our Mrs. Parker

Here are all 8 of W. Heath Robinson’s illustrations from Stories From The Odyssey Told to the Children. My copy has written on the flyleaf in beautiful confident cursive “A Merry Christmas to Robert. From Aunt Lydia.” The pen ink is still perfect but opposite it, the ink stamp of the original owner is a third gone. I can surmise the stamp should be “Robert Stanger.” but the “R” and “o” are gone and the “e” an “r” may soon follow. I’m assuming that is suppose to be a period after the name. Unless, I’m misreading it because some other detail has faded from the ink.

A beautiful old bookmark, the book where it belongs, & 3 options of memory.

This is a beautiful very old bookmark. And this is the cover of the book where this bookmark has always been, Stories From The Odyssey Told to the Children- written by Jeanie Lang with lovely art by W. Heath Robinson.

I remember the bookmark as being in the book when I bought it a zillion years ago at the American Association of University Women book sale.

But could I be wrong?

For years, I had this book and other at the family home in a back room used as an office, TV room, and place to store books you didn’t know where to put. And someone could just have taken it off the shelf and placed the bookmark in there. I had a great-grandmother who could make such things and some of her smaller items had been inherited and were still floating around that house almost a hundred years later.

The third Jorge Borges-like option is that it fits the book so well because the bookmark was generated by the book itself. How long would it take for a book to grow a bookmark?

And what type of seeds should be planted in the pages?
