Hello - this is the end of chapter 18. "why so short?" you say. It's true the first 17 chapters have been exactly 28 pages each, but as this was a transitory chapter, while writing it I felt stretching to get to 28 pages was doing the narrative and myself a disservice.
So we'll be taking a short break, returning with a new color page on the 31st, and then onto the desert (not dessert)
