    Yes, I stayed up to read this. Good thing I don’t have to go to work tomorrow.

    Didn’t Flask have a child? Could this be her grown-up, time-travelling son?

    Going to break a long standing personal rule because I’d actually like to see some discussion over the weekend on a matter that I’m actually quite curious about. Over the past couple of months, I’ve received a number of emails and comments from readers about Mr. A. Marx, esq.. some positive and some just as certainly not. And almost all of the negative comments pertaining to Marx hinge upon this notion that somehow, in some way, he violates the rules of this weird little world I’ve created in my overactive noggin. Suffice to say (because it’ll have to), Marx does not break the rules.. If anything, Marx embodies the rules of this world.. and he has limitations and boundaries just like any of the characters. However, it would spoil the story immensely if I were simply to come out and state what those limitations are and why they are. The approach I’ve taken to telling the story of Endtown from the very beginning is one of discovery, where door after door is being opened as you’re being dragged down a dark hallway.. And like life, what’s revealed can be funny, or sad, or frightening.. and, also like life, if you stick with it, you’ll ultimately experience all of it, again and again.. just maybe not necessarily in the order or quantity you’d have preferred. But why.. and this is what I’m curious about.. would someone believe that an author has made a mistake if he or she introduces elements into a story that a reader didn’t see coming? Has rote foreshadowing become so much a part of our storytelling traditions that anything that isn’t telegraphed in ages in advance is automatically seen as some kind of slip up? It doesn’t bother me as I can only tell this story in the way I know how.. but, as I said, the matter makes me curious. You tell me, folks.. :-)

    Linda is the one with the son. Flask doesn’t have any kids, as far as I know.

    ;-;/ <-Me waving goodbye to Flask, as I assume that this may be the last time we see her.

    I thinkof your "elements"as titilation. To get us thinking about our own life, our own goals, and most of all relief from some of the boring day by day we live. I come alive with your art and your story. That is why I love you.
    Blessed Be

    I’m totally sold on the way the Endtown story has unfolded. I realize Marx doesn’t fit everyone’s notion of what a character should be or do. Marx has opened us up to new concepts and ideas. It is your story. I am enjoying it immensely. Keep it up!

    Maybe some people don’t like surprises, but keep them coming because most of us do. It’s your story and it’s great.

    In my personal opinion, Marx is what’s so cool about your little created multiverse. I started reading to read the story, I kept reading for the sake of learning more about Marx.

    I have no idea what the rules are about retailing spirits after hours.
