The names of Hoyle, Tally, Bee, and Fournier all come from popular brands of playing cards.
“Fools of Fortune” is the title of a 1983 novel by William Trevor. It has nothing to do with this story, but all Ballinabricky’s titles try to call attention to works of Irish literature.
Brilliant start of a new story! Great cliffhanger.
I’m wondering, where did you get those hands of cards? Is that real Lego?
Yes and no. They are the Lego clear fans with a custom paint job.
