That was the best four day festival of geekdom I have ever seen. And this wasn't no kiddie's party, this was a no holds barred grown ups party 24/7. I'm going again next year. It was that good. I'm not kidding. Go. You'll thank yourselves for it. ~AK

2/7/2003: This next bit is the prologue from the novel that really hooked me to Paul's work. I first read it in it's original incarnation and it gave me the creeps. I'm not sure it survived the adaptation as well as it could, but I still like it and hope you will too. ~AK
1/31/2003: It's with sadness that I'm the one performing this and future updates. Paul and I became friends quickly in and around 1999 and we began a fruitful relationship exchanging ideas and proofreading duties. We also argued over anything and everything political, social or hysterical. I'll miss you Paul. ~AK
A statement from the family:
Thanks to everyone for your e-mails, letters, and phone calls over the last year. They were much appreciated. Even though he never met his Internet friends and colleagues in person, he deeply cherished those relationships. Paul was a talented writer and avid photographer. His love of the ocean is recorded in his many photographs. He was a faithful member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. At home, he was the resident expert on all things electronic and photographic, and he loved building his own personal computers.
Remembrances in Paul's honor may be sent to:
Monterey Bay Aquarium
886 Cannery Row
Monterey, CA 93940-1095

So let's get down to business. :)
First up, K'Arthur of Robin's NIMH fanfiction archive graciously offered a new forum. Among the advangages of this forum is an utter lack of popups and a surrounding community of reasonably good amateur writers. If you like Paul's work, I'm certain someone in that forum can direct you to comparable material. If you're a writer, stick around, some people have found regular proofreaders there, and so might you. :) The two downsides aren't terrible at all. One, you have to sign up to post. Two, I personally hate the colour scheme. (Sorry Kriz!) So drop on by and tag a note. :)
Fanart! Yes, there is new fanart! The descriptions are exactly as Paul left them but with the new material I've asked the artists to submit their own comment with all new images. There are a few descriptions missing at the moment.
And the main event... The chapters thirteen through twenty of Lands End join the other twelve. Enjoy. :)
Follow the link below for the updates page as Paul left it.
