Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 13

Wednesday, October 17, 2018  It’s Hidebound Hump Day, and another episode of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.  There was not a Straightlaced Saturday chapter last week, so today we pick up where we left off a week ago.  Remember I’ve mentioned that this serial was originally presented as a “culinary” mystery.  All of the random “things” that … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 13

A Revealing Straightlaced Saturday — Cornelis Drebbel 9

Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 7

Wednesday, September 19, 2018  Welcome back to Hidebound Hump Day and the next episode of the steampunk serial.  The next random “thing” a reader left to drive the plot of this story should come as no surprise — “steam engine.”  Let’s see if I use it in a way you expect.  (winks) Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, … More Hidebound Hump Day — Cornelis Drebbel 7
