Being AWOL last week for a little jaunt meant that I had some catching up to do over a Teagan Geneviene’s creative blog.. Things are getting serious for Copper, The Alchemist (Cornelis) and The Woman in Trousers (Felicity) as they hide out from the evil one eyed, one horned, flying purple Eater. Side effects of being in this other world are causing things to spin and drastic measures are necessary.. Here is a snippet and please head over to read the complete episode.
Welcome to Hidebound Hump Day, my chuckaboos!
When I wrote this episode back in 2015, I was working on a novel called The Guitar Mancer. Later I even tried to serialize it here as a means of finishing it. The feedback of readers back then brought an unexpected change to the story. It was almost complete, but with my job, I still wasn’t able to write “the end.”
Special thanks to Lavinia Ross, who I think loves that story more than anyone else does. “Time keeps rolling on,” as she sings in one of her songs, yet she continues to encourage me to finish that novel. Hopefully, once I get moved and settled into my new digs, I will do that soon. Here’s a beautiful sample of Lavinia’s music.
Yes indeed, time keeps rolling on, and yes, I said I’m finally moving. Can one woman, alone, except for a cat, and with severe agoraphobia manage to relocate across 2,000 miles? It sounds like a comedy to some. However, I assure you that for me, it’s a horror story.
Onward… The three things that propelled the #steampunk submarine in this episode are from an author who is a wonderful supporter of this blog and of my writing — Olga Núñez Miret. She’s multi-talented, and one of those talents is picking terrific “things.”

Chapter 29. Felicity figured out at least part of the mystery of the “trained” chimpanzees, but we still don’t know who was using them.
Chapter 30. Cal Hicks, the ape version of Calvin Hixon, showed our heroes to the laboratory of the purple world’s Cornelis Drebbel. Just before they went inside, the bloodcurdling hunting call of the one eyed one horned flying purple people eater was heard. They ran to the laboratory to hide.
