Chapter 8 is still really long, after taking 10 pages off the front and making it into Chapter 7. All told it's about 27 pages, but it's all talking about one incident, which means that it should probably all be one chapter after all, to follow the format I was working with. Ahwell.
It occurs to me that I should add a teaser to convince people to actually read it... okay.
In the newest episode of Glowbugs, a sinister new player arrives on Eden Station. Does Five Dripping Moondrops have designs on the innocent children of the Eden system? Will their plans come to fruition, or will Terry spend 27 pages on an irrelevant philosophical discussion about the nature of consciousness and Jink's romantic prospects? Or is it finally time for a real orgy scene?
No... none of those, really. Please read it anyway.
