A happy ending for the dragons — and, consequently, for the team!
[Birthday shout-out to Samuel R. Delany!]
And now, a chance to see who if anyone actually reads these blurbs:
this is the last page of Space Kid! for the foreseeable future. There are a number of reasons for this indefinite hiatus, but the biggest one is that I have no way of getting Episode Ten written in time to keep the pages appearing weekly online — I don’t even know what the story for Ep. 10 would be right now! So going on some sort of hiatus is kind of a necessity now.
But besides that, lately I’ve been feeling like I want to try new things and learn new things… practise some technical aspects where I’m lacking, and maybe get some concrete work done on another series I have been wanting to start for over 30 years (working at it very off and on all that time). Anyway, not having a script ready is as good a reason as any to choose now as the time to take a break and do other stuff.
I also want to thank you for your interest, any of you who have read (and hopefully enjoyed) any of this series — some of you have been reading for years! I do appreciate your support very much, thanks again.
Finally, because this episode is one of the few that didn’t end with the traditional finale, I would like to say:
Thanks, Space Kid!
Thank YOU for writing such an entertaining series!
I look forward to seeing what you do next.
It’s been an honour to have you along for the ride, Steve!
Thank you for the fun ride these past 9 episodes, and good luck in your future projects!
Thank you for your kind feedback and good wishes!
I really enjoyed Spacekid. Thanks for the run, and good luck!
Thanks very much!
