Each story is a self-contained murder mystery, but they all connect together to form a (very) loose novel. I've been attracted to this forum because it seems to provide honest appraisal rather than just 'encouraging platitudes' (although there's nothing wrong with encouragement. I also like the idea that we can all comment on each other's work. I would like to publish my stuff, but I won't cry if I don't - because the real fun was the writing. In fact, now that I've finished these stories I feel lost and wish I could start all over again. Anyway, looking forward to contributing.

Will you be commenting on the work of others that you see posted on the site?
Through the smoke and fog there comes a form ... shape shifting ... could this be the Future?
