That did the trick. I so like ( mild spoiler for chapter 42 )
Also, though this is not comforting in the least, it is rather interesting so far: Black Crown Project, a new browser-based game from the Fallen London folks that is kind of like a Choose Your Own Adventure horror novel—fittingly, as it was commissioned by Random House from a debut writer. It's free to play but you can speed things up with micropayments (I saw in an article that the game folks estimate that taking all the shortcuts would amount to about ten bucks). I'm actually kind of liking the current pace, however: you accumulate a maximum of twenty actions, with a new one every twenty minutes, so you stop in two or three times a day for a concentrated dose of extreme weirdness and then close the "book" for a while. They're still shaking out some bugs, but if that interests you, check it out.
( not-very-major things )
