Freedom, But At What Cost? Witnessing Man's Desperate Attempt to Escape in General Bazra's Presence

In Chapter Three of Paul Thompson's Dance of the Nutcracker, Fritz experiences the slow passage of time as he works on a building site with other prisoners. One day, General Bazra arrives, and the soldiers guarding the site take Anthony away to be a gladiator. Fritz is left with a feeling of dread and promises to tell Anthony's family what happened to him. Then, we take a little detour over to Amazon to see where you can find all three books in The Nutcracker Trilogy. Time to PIVOT again. It's been six months since I last made a big change to my blog. Last time, I let you know that fellowbibliomaniacs.com would become https://davidsheley.com, a personal blog and website hosted on WordPress. WordPress is a great tool, but for someone like me who writes as a hobby, paying $50-$100 per year for a site like this isn't very cost-effective. With that said, I'm going to be focusing my efforts on https://davidsheley.substack.com. My SubStack will contain all of the archives from https://davidsheley.com, and I will continue to post similar articles there. You'll be able to enjoy my writings, photos, audio, and video ramblings ad-free. That's one of the really cool things about SubStack - there are no ads. It's a place to read great writing from newbies like me to professional authors and journalists. I'm excited to announce a new project that I'm working on called The Artifact. This will be a collection of short stories. Most will be science fiction, and at least initially, they will all be written by me. Eventually, I hope to invite other talented authors to join me. Sounds interesting, right? Come subscribe to my newsletter at https://davidsheley.substack.com to see where I end up with all of this. At the time of this message, The Artifact is but a mere placeholder. Subscribe to https://theartifact.substack.com to receive a notification when the first story becomes available. I really hope to see you there! I should mention that I'm going to be removing all other social media from my phone. My goal is to focus. I want to create something worth your time, which will be hard to do if I allow myself to be continually distracted by the myriad of social media available at my fingertips. I'm not closing any of my accounts - I just won't be looking at them from my phone. I'll check in from my desktop computer from time to time - probably to remind you about what I'm doing on Substack.
