So, sitting here watching my hometown Penguins get shellacked, blown out, slaughtered, or whichever euphemism you like, I figured I’d write a bigger annotation than usual.
It’s that van der Hoek guy again. He may not be in such good shape here, despite his very topical book from the last Cannon story. Fitting that he’s related to the Mendicant Order of St. Giles, which is one of my favorite contributions to this setting. You’ll begin to see why as this story goes on.
I’m currently about four handwritten pages ahead (an update of this length comes to about two pages). I’d like to have another one of this length for you, but it depends on how productive I am weeknights this week. The prognosis is decent, at least.
