“Fantastic Tales – The Doom That Came To Brassport!” is intended to invoke the spirit of the old time “pulp serials” from which comics drew their roots (and many notable characters). It’s structured as 30 separate short stories, each from a different character’s point of view but which meld together to form a larger tale that no one person is in a position to see.
As always comments and feedback are more than welcome!
Good morning my son,
Mom and I have come to the conclusion that because you have given yourself such a heavy writing schedule, that it would be okay with us if you want to release only one chapter of mirrors a week on Sunday morning. We love both but don’t want you to have melt down from the load you are putting on yourself
Mom and Dad
You never learn how much of a load you can carry unless you try to lift more than you think you can.
Chapters for The Imperfect Mirrors will continue at their regular pace. If one of the two has to fall behind it’ll be Fantastic Tales since this one’s kind of “bonus work” for NaNoWriMo.
Is this one continuous story, or multiple short stories?
30 chapters of one story, each told by a different narrator. So it’s sort of both. Each narrator has their own story but they need to be read together to get the whole of what’s going on. Some chapters tie-in strongly with the other chapters, some are more stand-alone but even those contain a piece of the overall plot and (as best as I can recall) establish something that shows up later.
