As noted before, I have resumed work on the Sobel Wiki, an online encyclopedia of the alternate timeline of Robert Sobel's counterfactual history For Want of a Nail. Every day, for as long as I can manage, I'll be posting at least one new article. Currently, I am concentrating on vignettes from the For All Nails project, and today's vignette is FAN #44C: "On Brittany's Shores" by Randy McDonald. The vignette consists of a story filed by a Montreal journalist, André-Philippe Maeterlinck, about his visit to Brittany in September 1972.
When Randy first sent a rough draft of this vignette to myself and the rest of the FAN Cabal ten years ago, I suggested that he give it the title "Brittany's Spears". Sadly, Randy eventually decided not to go there, but the reader can see in the fifth paragraph just how close he came.
