Hey, Ob! Apologies for not responding earlier. Yes, I've been off a-questing... for a job! Wish me luck; it's a tough market. Anyway, I appreciate your changing the tense back to past-, I think it reads better, conveying a "days of yore" feel to the summaries. It will also be a lot less work for you! Also, I've read your series outline and am keen to know about the additional subplots. When you have a few minutes, please e-mail me with eludications. Happy Wandering!
