Kate Anderson and the Dark Backward and Abysm of Time-Part Four

After Book of the Dead was well received, I immediately threw myself into doing more Kate. There are more than a few notebooks with abandoned Kate stories in them, mostly written in-between class notes for subjects I could care less about. We were going to do a sequel and then Lexi decided she wasn't going to do Chautauqua. I toyed with the idea of writing one anyway, but convinced myself that it would be a very bad idea. And it would have been. And then we were going to do a short film or two for the Chautauqua film festival and that didn't happen for various reasons. Although I don't remember precisely why, I think we probably just ran out of time.

Meanwhile, the play I *did* write for Chautauqua was being performed. The Magnificent Adventures of Mothman and Chrysalis featured Drake Anderson as the title character. Drake Anderson is Kate's cousin, but this was not made particularly clear in the script. Drake and his youthful ward Julie Adams will be showing up at some point in one of the backup stories once I can come up with a story that isn't obvious. Ha!
