YOUR INPUT REQUESTED!

Some of you who frequent the QAF boards on Yahoo and TWoP (Television Without Pity) might be aware that I've been asking readers for their input about a possible sequel to "Queer Theories" called "Queer Realities." But I also have a sequel outlined for "Nowhere Man" -- probably to be called "Fool on the Hill" -- that would pick up where NM will leave off and follow this Alternate Universe through the First Season. Because of my teaching schedule next semester, I will not be able to do both sequels simultaneously. I would love to do BOTH of them -- eventually -- but I can only do one at a time. So, the problem is which to carry on with first. If you have a preference -- or if you'd rather I just shut up and get OUT of your life so you can have your computer to yourself again -- just let me know!

Send Gaedhal your input on the sequel question -- as well as any other feedback, comments, and questions. If you have let me know via the boards, I already have your vote down! And thank you!

"NOWHERE MAN" is not exactly a teaser and not exactly a new series. It's a little of both -- and a bit of a mystery:

It might help to read Chapter 2 of "Queer Theories" for the background of Brian/"Jack" in New York: "Red Shirt" takes place in New York City, February 1988. The narrator is Ron Rosenblum, a graduate student at NYU making a film about teenage runaways.

Just another 'shout out' to thank Susan S. my beta. I probably would have given up this venture a long time ago if she hadn't been there, cracking the whip! She wouldn't be out of place at the Tool Shed -- but it hurts so good, if you know what I mean!

Characters are borrowed from CowLip and Showtime and all those fine people. But All the stories here are by GAEDHAL. Yes -- no one else is responsible, so I won't pass the buck.
