He Slumbers Not but Lives in Frightful Form

Evening all.
     Those fearing for my health can rest easy in that I have awoken from a deep sleep and am back chasing fiction submission statuses.
     I had actually started a piece for this little column based upon the idea that sequels are very bad ideas, but I found myself finding far too many exceptions for the argument to run anything other than ‘I don’t like sequels and if I start writing them there had better be a good reason; really, really good; epicly good, in fact.’
     So, yes, I have been thinking of you all.
     And not, might I add, in a good way.
