Greetings, Empyrean readers!
First, let me say thank you, and we love you. I've been feeling some love back from a few readers and it is much appreciated. Since we're giving our 'journeyman pieces' away for free here, gratitude is a nice alternative coin.
Second, if you're reading this far, let me beg for more. The work here by Laine and I is done for practice, but also to build up the Empyrean Dreams setting. We're creating a shared universe and showing others what can be done with it. Your feedback is appreciated both in person and on the site. If something is left unclear in a story, if you like a particular feature (a creature, a plotline, a reference, etc.), or want to see more of something, comment! We'll even take well-considered criticism.
Third, here's fair warning for the future. The Wreck of the *Untranslatable* is not a short story. It's actually a short novel. Check out the chapter list page if you haven't already; there will be at least 25 chapters/posts in total. I'm almost done with the ending. Since that story has most of my attention lately, Bad Egg has been slow in progressing. I promise I'll get back to it once Wreck is out of my system.
After that, no more promises. I've got a job to find and maybe a literary agency to chase down, not to mention a handful of non-Empyrean story ideas waiting their turn. Laine might stop back in for a chapter or two, but she's keeping busy in the non-fictional universe, also... so no presumptions there.
Good thing there's enough Wreck to last us another couple of months...
