Mister Ron's Basement #1640

We are beginning a NEW Monday book serialization! 

Writing under the pen name of Mrs. Mark Peabody, Metta Victoria Victor amused readers of Cosmopolitan Magazine through the 1850s with the adventures of Miss Slimmens, the old maid milliner. You can hear an early Miss Slimmens story in Basement Episode Number 265.

In 1859, some of her stories were put together in the book 'Miss Slimmens's Window.'

Today, we begin with the Introduction of this book, and Chapter One, 'You Can't Catch Old Birds With Chaff.'

As always, your comments are welcome! Mail to:  revry@panix.com

Time: approx sixteen minutes 

The Mister Ron's Basement Full Catalog can be found at:


There is a nifty interview with Mister Ron in issue #59 of iProng Magazine (now known as Beatweek Magazine) which can be downloaded as a free pdf file here.

John Kelly of The Washington Post has written a lively piece about the Basement. You can read it here.
