Well hopefully it is something non-realms and you can share something, sometime in the near future. I am looking forward seeing you work without the FR and flex your creative muscles even more.

P.S. Since I didn't get a manuscript to proofread, I will just hae to keep guessing

Oh don't worry--it's fiction. Pure fantasy!

From outside comes the sound of planes spiraling out of control and crashing . . .

Oops!

Are you trying to tell us that there is a polar bear, smoke powder weapons and something that sounds like airplane engines in downshadow?

Of course not, and that is why Manshulhu will always defeat Mecha-shoon! Curses!

I see it's time to summon my secret weapon . . .

One of my daughters first words(she is now 12) was shouting PIKA PIKA!!! at the top of her 1 year old lungs.

But I have to say that your Pika-shoon will get his butt handed to him by Ling-Ling-Shoon!

Ah! . . . huh.

Nope, nope. It's gone.

Getting back to other news!

That's the second time (to my counting) you did that.

"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams."

Oh yes, I recall--I just had a flashback to my favorite D&D joke:

"Is a half-tiefling, half-halfling a half-tief or a ling-ling?"

Oh noes! He's going to reveal my novel's main villain . . . the dreaded Halashoon, illicit love child of the mad archmage and the Manshoon clone hidden in Undermountain, conceived by polymorph magic, bred to destroy!

This looks like a job for . . . Captain Blackstaff! (By our powers combined . . .)

*Ahem.*

Ok, the silliness might have progressed a bit farther than I had originally intended. My fault entirely.

Let's leave it there before we get really ridiculous and get back to at least *pretending* to be serious.

Downshadow must needs remain a mystery 'ere April 2009. But fun will be had by all. If you've enjoyed my writing thus far, I hope you'll like this one too.

It's more similar to Ghostwalker than Depths, I think, though with a healthy dose of "Greater Treasure," too. It is, I think, better than all three (in the "Erik-becomes-a-better-writer-by-experience" sense), but I'll let you be the judge.

Cheers


(P.S. Captain-Blackstaff . . . he's-our-hero!)

Don't worry friend, Erik will tease, poke, prod and obfuscate, but he will never spoil a book before it's time!!

P.S. But, he will let us think that he has given somrthing away from time to time!
