About the Story
Continuing to quality-test the Dunsany work, the rabbit hole gets deeper and darker. But the Tester is not alone. And one of his unseen guardians is casting a wide net for help. Of course, one never knows who might be watching.
If you're not already on board with Feu De Joie, this installment is unlikely to change your mind, but if you are (welcome to the club, have a cup of bitter tea), I think you'll be satisfied. The Tester has been brought low and is glumly fulfilling a stifling contract when he receives a sign of hope, and readers receive a call to action. The Dunsany excerpt this time around is a surprisingly moving story of war-torn France, that of a man who has lost his home, and it nicely mirrors the Tester's own story without making too obvious a comparison.
I recommend getting involved on the Twitter side of things, where readers have been invited to participate in some apparently consequential interactions. @QUARTER_MOON_MASTER and @BUCOLIC_ehf are enjoyably chatty, too. Also, remember your password(s), but if you get frustrated, try contacting Alan. He's helped some readers get up to speed.
If you can, start reading now! The Tester's Archive will probably be available in perpetuity, but there are more ephemeral aspects of this story that you don't want to miss.
