Show Excerpt

Certes it is a noble sport
And men have quitted selle and swum for't,
But I am of a meeker sort
And I prefer Surtees in comfort.

Reach down my "Handley Cross" again.
My run, where never danger lurks, is
With Jorrocks and his deathless train
Pigg, Binjimin and Arterxerxes!

[Illustration: January.]

Coursing.

Most men harry the world for fun--
Each man seeks it a different way
But "of all daft devils under the sun
A grey'ound's the daftest" said Jorrocks J.

[Illustration: February.]

Author of the Day

C.L. Bevill
C.L. Bevill has been in the U.S. Army, cleaned floors, a graphic illustrator, a therapist, and a stay at home mother before she took up writing. She loves to write stories that explore the human mind, keep readers mystified and include just a dash of romance. As our author of the day, Bevill chats about her fascination with telepathy, Cajun culture and reveals how she thinks dreams serve us in life.
