Say you have a bud, his name is Robert.
Everyone calls him Bobby, or Bob even, except when he's around. Then it's Robert - because he's made it plain he wants to be known as Robert.
When he isn't around, folks call him Bobby - weird, huh?

Makes sense. Also, great entry! Keep up the good work. This is a really good story. I like the world you've created.

Every few days I scan,
hoping to find,
a few more words
about a world unkind

to a scooter-riding vet
and a sign-talking dog.
Why has this story
up and gone?

Will they win their struggle
to live and love free
and in helping others
overcome corporate greed?

The question
is as open
as their universe
is frozen.

I may hope against hope
but I have faith
that moar story will appear,
someday, in this place.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I read this post and
I hear you.

I've just finished editing the Roll Call 2 story and am now on Chapter seven, starting on new text to finish that story. I've written an entire new first chapter, introducing a changed (and renamed) Prof Mors.

I've been working with a couple of board regulars on a spinoff series...

The Prism Mysteries


The Story of the Mummified Stranger
By
D. K. Richardson
With Chris Zimmerman

as with many new collaborations, it expands on the time to publication.

I've also started on working up Roll Call 3, tentatively, End of Empire....

So, it's not like I've been sleeping in late.

Thanks for the voicing support to the Roscoe series. It will get it's time, I'm still sorting a (believable) ending.

Thanks for the kind words.

I find that writing in 'segments' like this is both easier (for me) and a lot more enjoyable than laying out and linking multiple chapters. Still treading water on the my artwork.
