Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Land of Confusion with… Arahant

 

Heya… Sidekick Nod here. We’ve got a delightful little Zoom conversation with Mr. Arahant for you today.

Arahant is actually Charles L. Weatherford, author of the Hidden Angels series of alternate history science fiction books. So you’ll want to check those out.

Lessee, what are we talking about today? You get a taste of Charles’ storytelling skills, free-form as it were, reactions to the recent Biden/Harris news, and vice presidents in general, and the country’s first Indian vice president (!!!), environmentalism, and something about forgetting to close the door on a submarine.

Here ya go; enjoy!

    I’m a fiction writer, and I’m a giver. What can I say?

    Also, it was only about 625 words, give or take, so very much a short story. My books run about 150,000 words.

    I wrote my own highly favorable review a ways back, and it all still holds true today. Arahant is one of most original and distinctive authors on Ricochet. He’s also one of the most reliable R> citizens, with a tireless, good-humored ability to make us care about iambic verse or fourth-cousin bloodline issues or the lack thereof. He does the selfless stint of keeping the QotD thread going even through contributory dry spells. A hyper-savant and a servant of God. You chose your guest wisely.

    Speaking of which, if anyone has a quotation in mind, today is open…

    Arahant that is the oddest outfit I have ever seen you in. And that’s saying something.

    Another reward for listening….I found a sane person to follow on Twitter, now that I know his real name.

    As much as I comment on Twitter, it won’t take much to follow. Check back next year. 🤣
