There’s actually a lot more to Silver Brown than that which can be downloaded from this site. The present manuscript is about 104,000 words long, but most of it needs major revisions and there are plenty of darlings that need to be killed, as Faulkner would put it. There’s also a particularly poignant passage I wrote just a few chapters after the eleventh chapter that I’ve decided could be better used as a plot device for the climax. So now the story needs to grow a new torso. I know this literary creature well enough to know that it’s most certainly capable of doing that. If you were to stab it right in the heart, it would just use one of its backup hearts.
