An Atherton’s Artificial Artifact!
Today’s Entry is based on Batty Langley’s New Principles of Gardening (1728), with a Dash of The Hound of The Baskervilles.
You have the best theme ideas. So creative! I loved your short story entry on my blog, and I’d like to send you the email with the prize code. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, so all you need to do is contact me. I promise not to use your email for anything nefarious!
Thank you! 🙂 I have e-mailed you (though I fear I don’t have a working Kindle; I actually lost one Kindle of mine when it was actually eaten by an actual dog, and the others haven’t fared much better).
Lovely entry. I think it’s quite considerate of this author to caution Noblemen. They do tend to have this problem, don’t they? 😉
Hey Jazzfeathers! Yes, these noblemen do seem to have unique troubles, don’t they?

You could listen to me read a piece of spam mail aloud (O, My Viagra, My New-Found-Land!)
You could play a Twine game (The Perils of Sir Reginald, Bart.)
You could look at pictures of me in costumes, or even read the related Edwardian-era mystery novella (Alas!)
You could read Stranded!, a Strand-Magazine-Based form of Illustrated Entertainment (start here with a sort of explanation: Stranded!)
...or you could just sort of explore... there is a lot of material here, and (I think) much of it is Very, Very Good.
