Re: New issue Online

I suppose this is as good a place as any to ask the question.  .  .

What happened to The Gulf of Eden by McCamy Taylor.

Shouldn't there be a Part II out here, someplace?

It's a really good story, so far.  And I purposely waited till yesterday to read Part I thinking that Part II couldn't be too far behind.

... Wow. I see see see that CCC's speed-reading course has really paid off. There'll be another 5-star critic soon at this rate. Now, if EVERYBODY comments on all the stories, we'll get a respectable tally for the month...

Re: New issue Online

Oh Bill, I'm sorry! I'm still working on Part II. I had a few false starts. Since this section has a new setting and characters, I have to get the feel for it.

I was hoping for feedback before I continued. I have never done a real serial in which people say which characters they like and which ones they want to see sink to the bottom of the ocean---or which ones should be miraculously resurrected. But if no one has any preferences, I will just do whatever the characters tell me to do. :'(

Really!?

I'll add this to my project list then. I had gathered that the serial stories were a lock before any parts were ever published. (That may have been true for a certain period, because of a few bad experiences in the early days.)

As for characters sinking into Oceans and Resurrecting, do I detect an XMen reference, Ms. Grey?

Well, I've always been a bit of a quick reader, but I've never actually been on a speed-reading course. (One of the stories this month has given me an idea for a story of my own; I've just got a bit of final editing to do. I'll see if I can submit it in time for next month.)

Incidentally, where's the features page?

Oops. Not that it's worth much, since we don't have any articles again. I just haven't had time to write them myself, and no one is really sending anything in.

Re: New issue Online

Rob Wynne says that he had houseguests and has been somewhat distracted... but August will go online ANY DAY NOW.

(Ironically, his houseguests included Jeff Williams, the Production Editor, who was supposed to crack the whip and make sure stuff got done on time.) :-?
