Shooting Windows — Fury Triad Research

Shooting Windows — Fury Triad Research

I love photographing windows, usually the view from within.  And when it comes to windows, there is nothing I love more than leaded glass. When we were in England in March 2013, I shot several views from Erinyes Manor Baddesley Clinton. It’s difficult to explain what it’s like visiting a place after you’ve already absorbed it into the fantasy world you’re building, absorbed it because of its floorplan, its history–chosen for very practical...

In Which a Deck of Cards May Have Taken Over the Dys-Brain

In Which a Deck of Cards May Have Taken Over the Dys-Brain

I’m busily back in the world of the Fury Triad. Want to know what I’ve been researching lately? Can I tell you without giving away any spoilers? I think maybe I can. Back in the 1400s a card game called Tarocchi became popular amongst the wealthy in what we know today as Italy. [Amongst: a sign my brain is living in the UK, now!] It was known by different names in different parts of Europe, including Tarot in France. These cards...

The World of The Fury Triad – Harry Potter Fanfiction and Fandom As Early Influences

The World of The Fury Triad – Harry Potter Fanfiction and Fandom As Early Influences

I have been asked whether Harry Potter  and its fandom influenced the creation of The Fury Triad. Really! Why would you even imagine that Snape influenced This Crumbling Pageant’s villain, Mr Jones, aka Vespasian Wyllt? ::blinks innocently:: Wait. Am I being coy? I am being coy. Enough of that piffle. You wouldn’t be the first to notice. The review that spelled it out with the most detail came from Author Ashlyn Macnamara, whom I...
