Welcome to Stranded!, my Strand Magazine-based April A to Z Blogging Challenge! In this challenge, I will be taking illustrations from The Strand Magazine and making new stories out of them. So, in order to fully appreciate the Stirring Events eventuating here, a look back at my older A TO Z entries is advisable. I promise you, they are short. Click Here to start with my Theme Reveal, or Click Here to start with A! It is also totally acceptable to just look at today’s post.
Today, I have two panels for you: the next Installment of Alfie’s Narrative, and a One-Shot. First, let us look in on Alfie.
Oh dear. Alfie’s life seems to be Complex, and even Imperiled. I really don’t like to think of it. I shall therefore turn my mind instead to the more pleasing and mundane topic of Decorum. In fact, I have made you, dear reader, a One-Shot concerning Decorum. Here it is; it may well be dull, but after that last panel, perhaps it will be a kind of Tonic for your frayed nerves.
The first image is from The Strand Magazine, No. 17; the second image is from No. 48.
And that’s all for today, folks! Thanks for visiting; stay as long as you like! There is a LOT of content on this blaugh, and (in my totally-not-humble opinion) most of it is Very Good. May I particularly recommend my older A To Zs? If you click on the header, it will whisk you away to my homepage, and there, you ought to find links to my Thrilling A To Zs of Aprils Past.
And please note the list of A To Z Fictioneers in my sidebar (or, if you are on a Mobile Device or a Tablet, it may be somewhere under the Comments Section). This list, of we few, we happy few, who are Doing Fiction for our A To Zs this year, will help you find more fiction to read. Also! If you yourself are Fictioneering for your A to Z this year, Comment and tell me so, and I will put you on the list!
Oh yes, and please do leave a comment in any case. Even if it is just “Hey, I exist, and I liked your thing.”
Until tomorrow, then!
