This tale... http://iomfats.org/storyshelf/hosted/arthur/eventide/01.html ... is an absolute delight. A tale of knights and squires, it clips along at a good pace. Arthur is painting a believable world. A second chapter has been posted while I was logging in here, so I am off to read that. I strongly suggest that you follow me.

I agree. But, of course, I would.

Go Arthur, Go Eventide!

Yes.  I'll admit that I did a bit of a double take myself when I first read that.

Forsooth and Gadzooks indeed!

What pray has happened to the final chapter of this tale? The others appeared at 2 or 3 day intervals, but it has been over a week since Chapter 7 saw the light of day.

I am waiting to receive it. As soon as I have it I will add it to the very next set.

Thanks, Timmy.

I only asked because I thought I recalled you saying a while ago that you were in future only going to accept serial stories that came to you complete and this was the second recent one which seemed to be stopping short of the terminus - Sahypo's 'The Apprentice' being the other.

occasionally this happens. I take assurances, those almost always work out.

Pleased to see Chapter 8 has now appeared, but it would seem the author intends there to be more - good.
