OK, first off…who stole September? Come on…fess up.
Sigh. Alright. Guess we have to admit that we’re actually in the fourth quarter of the year, as impossible as that seems. This week, we’ve got some nifty original poetry/flash fic on deck, followed up by Tom Jones – back in the house!
Blue, by Maevyn Davis-Rackerby
…recorded with permission of the author
When I first read this piece, it just pierced me. It’s so immediate, creates such a visceral experience in the reader, so that I couldn’t help but ride the hellish emotional rollercoaster along with the narrator of the poem.
And when we get to the end…god, the end. Well.
Honored that the author allowed me to record it and post it publicly. Enjoy.

Tom Jones Book X Ch 6, by Henry Fielding
Read by Mark Turetsky
Book 10 Chapter 6 of Tom Jones.
This is part of an ongoing project in which I will record and post one chapter per week of Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones over the course of four years.
In this week’s chapter, Partridge, without realizing just what he’s done, reveals to Jones that he has sent Sophia away the previous night, while Jones was with Mrs. Waters. This upsets Jones to no end, especially when he finds Sophia’s lost muff.
In the meantime, the two Irishmen who’ve been staying at the inn decide to head, out, but before they can, a mysterious man arrives.
There is also, within this chapter, what seems to be an honest advertisement for a coachman called Mr. King of Bath.
