A hodge-podge of words and pictures that range from so caliginous a night to an imagined beast and its haunts.

A Series of Four or Five
The "Tommy and Tuppence" series is one of my very favorites from Agatha Christie (affectionately known as the Queen of Crime). They occur in "The Secret Adversary", a 1922 novel, "Partners in Crime", a sort of short story collection, "N or M?" an espionage adventure, "By the Pricking of My Thumbs", a post-WWII novel, and their last, "Postern of Fate". They are Christie's only detectives that age with the novels, and that in itself is a marvelous feat. They solve crimes from their twenties to their sixties, and are marvelous in each endeavor!
