  1. I believe the Irish said it best when they quipped, “Holy Feck!” ;)

    Can’t wait until it’s all done! (And you’re over half done, right–if we don’t take page numbers into account and instead look at books/individual volumes of whatever size they might be?)


    • Act One is completely finished. (Though one book remains to be published.) Act Two is about 2/3 finished, with six out nine books written (though only four of the six have been published.) Two of the Intermezzo, and all of Act Three remain to be written.


    • That’s when the bewildering clown-themed terrorism begins. People will have to turn to the books for clues, which will ensure that they are perennial best-sellers like Catcher in the Rye, Mein Kampf and the Koran, whatever happens to me personally.

  2. That’s truely awesome, Sannion! Words are pouring from your lips and mind like how the Maeneds pour forth Dionysos’ sweet wine. (Ok, I was trying to be poetic. Didn’t quite work). Good on ya!! ^_^
