Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 36

Thanks for your kind words. In truth this has accidentally become my the premise for my MC's inner journey in a novel I've just drafted. More than anything, MC wants to go home to Earth.

With each 'R' and each critique I feel my expectations knocked down a peg or three. But, that's a good t...
