Sticking to my promised schedule of an episode every Monday, you’ll now find Episode 7 of A ‘Verse Full of Scum at the Serial Novella page.
There has been a fair amount feedback about the series and, I’m pleased to say, it’s been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to write to me. Also thanks to those that have posted reviews at the Pages Unbound website. If anyone else would like to add their reviews, that would be fantastic.
The only vaguely negative feedback so far is that quite a few people have complained about the weekly publishing schedule. They’re keen to read more and they want more regular installments. Well, I can understand the frustration. I wrote the thing, so I know how it ends, but if I didn’t, I’d probably want more regular episodes too.
However, I remember similar things from when I was a kid. TV series like Flash Gordon and Dr Who. Half an hour once a week was not nearly enough; I could hardly bear the wait to find out what happened. But wait I did and those Saturday evenings or Sunday mornings when the next episode aired became so much more pleasurable because we had to wait for them.
So I’m following that tradition and keeping the weekly episodes for A ‘Verse Full of Scum. Every once in a while I’ll treat you all to a double bill, like the recent Easter long weekend double episode. Remember, good things are worth savouring and I’d like to think that this is good enough to savour.
I’ve also been asked if this series is going to be published as a regular book. I’m not sure yet. I may very well issue a Print-On-Demand version of the whole thing when it’s run its course here on the site. However, I promised that it would be published here for free and that’s a promise I’ll keep. If a hard copy book version does appear, it won’t be until the full free version here is done.
So, enjoy Episode 7 and keep the feedback coming.
