    I still know the future, Veteran! Iseabal isn’t done talking yet.
    Commodore doesn’t believe any of this, of course. He’s just at the table because Cookie is bringing out fresh oysters in a few minutes for the guest.

    I think some of us saw a panel out of sequence earlier this week (#58, and this is #55).

    Yeah, I had to do a little math to make sure I wasn’t going to “bite my own tail” and run out of pages, but I think I’ve got enough pages backlogged to do two a week from here on out—with the story wrapping up in April or so.

    April? Do you have something after this? I hope.

    Yeah, it’s a story with a beginning, middle and definite ending—not a continuing story. (Unless I decide to do something with the same characters later. I’ve never done that before, but you never know…)

    @olddog1

    Yeah, I have a couple of possibilities. One’s entirely written, the others are more just in the idea phase at the moment.

    Shows what you know mister….selkies like squid. Otters eat oysters.
    (Snicker)
    And yes the Commodore will believe nothing of this.
    Or will he become a TRUE BELIEVER!!!!!
    What I suspect is Iseabel knows this John Clark Monk and is happy he is shall we say….returning for her own reasons.
    And Ben……keep up the work. What ever story you tell it will be fascinating to be sure. We are going to lose Endtown for a bit so maybe we can hang out over here.
    Ehh? (I will bring beer. Like Stella Artois or such)

    I am surprised. I had expected this to be a continuing story that have characters coming in and leaving smaller stories punctuating the epic story of the Oyster War. Still this is good as it is.

    @Veteran

    What’s going on with Endtown? Is it going on hiatus?

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Yeah, it’s definitely conceived of as something that would eventually be a book with a definite ending. Although, without giving too much away, the ending is fairly open-ended. I’ve never re-used characters in “continuing adventures” kind of stuff, but that’s actually an intriguing possibility.
