In “Home is where the bleeding heart is,” chapter 7 of Martha’s Children, Ned finds himself without Martha to instruct him in living as a vampire. So what does he do now? If you’re not reading Martha’s Children, my tale of cops and vampires in 1969 Chicago, you can start at the beginning here.
I normally write an essay on a related topic in these posts. However, I’ve been suffering from a viral infection this week, and haven’t had the energy to write one. My apologies. I may end up skipping Monday’s post, too, while this infection abates, but should be back as usual next Friday. I’ve already written chapter 8 of Martha’s Children, so it is not at risk of being interrupted because of my temporary indisposition.
