Whenever I think the fourth story, We Gotta Get Outta This Place! is getting close to finished, Michael or one of the harem whispers in my ear, and we're off and running again. It also doesn't help my writing that the Swarm authors are working on some seriously good stories - distracting me - that I hope you'll see soon. Sooo - Gotta's coming - I promise.
My contest attempt for readers to identify the Heinlein references in my stories was a huge thud. No attempts to to play. One generous reader offered his own name for a villian - a very good name for a bad guy - but it didn't fit any of the bad guys in this story. Maybe another.
However, the toying with names leads me to another question. Several of you asked for, and I try to accommodate, a character list for each story. I'm concerned that too detailed a list within the story might be a spoiler, and at the end of the story it is too late. How would you folks feel about a separate posting of only a character list, organized by story? Any thoughts? Let me know.
