Toward Graphic Belles Lettres

tgbl

My book “Toward Graphic Belles Lettres”  is sold out.  But here is one of its stories :

“BEHEST WITH 5 FINGERS”

This title was inspired by the 1928 classic horror strory “The Beast With Five Fingers” by William Fryer Harvey.  Harvey’s tale was about a hand after it was severed from a body.  Our story, conversely, is about a body before it is severed from a hand.  Such mere details notwithstanding, “Behest With 5 Fingers” was named in homage to a giant of the genre.

MY ROBOT FRIENDS

I hadn’t posted for a long time.  Each long-ago post was a panel in my long running, excellent, insightful, witty – and ignored – comic strips .  Might as well save the effort, I thought, since no one in cyberspace is paying attention.

Well, how wrong I was!  Out of the blue, a notice arrived:

”Hi Adrian

People visiting Adrianruyle haven’t heard from you in a while.  Write a post,or share a photo or video to keep people engaged.

Thanks,

The Facebook Ad Team “

Some one out there cares!  Some one is listening! Of course it’s “just” the programmed robots at Facebook  —  So what?  I have found my true audience .  The robots follow me faithfully.  They keep everything I post.  They uncritically accept my most personal thoughts.

To heck with “keeping people engaged”.  Keep robots engaged!  So , my true robot friends, these posts are for you!!
