Q for Quisling

My 2020 Blogging from A to Z Challenge revisits my best posts from the 2014 to 2019 Challenges.

Q for Quisling (2014)

 A word we often see, maybe use. But do you know how it originated?

Shakespeare perhaps? Or???

In fact, it was a word originating in World War II and appropriate in many contexts. Name one use before you read the original post.

All the research nuggets were unearthed while I was creating the game-world for my novel ‘Wyrm Bait’. Those, evolved into my post-apocalyptic saga Gossamer Flames. And the research is ongoing as rabbit holes keep appearing.

  1. Thank you Roland for this interesting post on Quislings. Learnt a lot, the meaning , the origin … have read Green Mars, blue and red too, but didn’t pick up on the word … time to reread.
    Good news, my Welsh friends in the Dordogne have agreed to be beta-readers for your Azure Spark. I’ll be sending them the links (A to Z recaps from 2019, I think, is that ok ?) However, could you send me your email address, so that I can give it to David Llewyn, so he can reply directly to you ?
