Read this one this morning. My second favorite "complete story" of the issue! I like the interweaving of the storyline with the Rainbow Serpent mythology. Well done!

Cheers, Kurt.

I'm a fan of parallel, complementary storylines. Though there were times when I wondered if I was overdoing it with this one. I've got Gavin in the present, Gavin leading up to the present, ancient mythology, and ancient mythology getting mixed up with Gavin in the present.

Fantastic story, Vincent. The surrealism was delicious.

This one was probably my favorite. I'm a big fan of modern myth stuff.

Hey guys, thought I'd let you know that this one has been accepted by Pseudopod as a reprint. So it'll be an online audio story. That'll be cool.

I think it's the best story you guy have ever published, period. And there's been some great ones.
