Chapter 21 of Magician’s Misfortune

Harry Eberhardt likes sex. Preferably with willing women. Which rules out Deecee Young, who’s a lesbian. And Sanderson, who’s quite unwilling and just helped bust Harry’s nose again. So why is his life revolving around these two women? It’s “SNAFU,” chapter 21 of Magician’s Misfortune, my weekly serial about a government magician being quite down on his luck.

"SNAFU" originated in the military, so a picture of a military SNAFU seemed appropriate. This is "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Richard Caton Woodville, Jr. (1856-1927) who's family's life has its own SNAFU moments. Although famous and successful as a battlefield artist, Woodville committed suicide by shooting himself. Sadly, he may have taken after his father RCW, Sr., another noted artist, who died of a morphine overdose at age 30.

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.
