With Patty’s surgery set for Friday, we find it just a little hard to concentrate, and find a need for something else to think about.
I look forward each day to editing Bell Mountain No. 15, Oceans of Time. No. 14, Behold!, flows very nicely into it. Editing can be a soothing way to pass the time. Not that you can count on that. There are editing assignments that can be quite hair-raising.
Anyway, after Oceans we’ll have the story of King Ozias in three books, the first of which has been written–Ozias, Prince in Peril. Ozias lived some 2,000 years before the events described in the first 15 books, so expect a lot of changes.
Uh… Why do we have this picture of a great big salamander with jaws that could take your hand off?
Well, now, haven’t you read any number of books that would have been significantly improved by the addition of a giant salamander? I know I have. But in this case the plot demands a giant salamander. You’ll see…

I’m keeping you and Patty in prayer.
Prayers for Patty. Amazing how you can write such good fantasy – keep it up.
For as long as the Lord lets me, I will. Thanks so much, Dave.
You and Patty are always in our prayers.
No, I can’t say, that any books I have read were significantly improved by the addition of a giant salamander. In fact, I can’t recall that a small, large, or medium sized slimy salamander played any part, much less a giant salamander, in any book I have read. Even Burroughs never had any of those beasts in his books, did he? I don’t know, can it be done?
Well, somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
but Lee with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn’t but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he tried…
