I check regularly on all active Forums and sometimes get a fine surprise. Alacrity with the wait is all we can do.

Thanks for the snacks RFC - SoS was great, Multiverse will be as well! October for HFQ! With patience wonderful things come around
I am not young enough to know everything!

Thank you for the Good Advice, Peter.

Neither has told us that they were Inspecting and
Revising. DW did tell us about the Battle Dragon totals.
Since then ...................
Perhaps he could use a clerk.

Perhaps he will post a Multiverse Snippet on Wednesday?
Please. Preity Please with a circle of dancers round it?

Give Joelle and David time to revise the book to be consistent with the prior two. I wouldn't be surprised if all of our nit picking exposed more than just the number of dragons involved in the invasion. The process for checking and fixing those details might well be significant.

Have patience, Howard. We waited nearly a decade, a month or so more won't matter much.

Now it is August 4.
Still no snippet.
Two whole months since the last one.

If RFC has forgotten, that he started snippeting here, too? After all, there were only 4 Snippets so far ...

It has been proposed to me, and I agree, that very rare snippeting hurts the forum, because commenters drift away. The thrice a week approach managed by the illustrious Drak Bibliophile at a few paragraphs each time would be appreciated.

But then the logical extreme would be something like a single word posted every couple of hours!

And just how is it that we bring about this marvelous sounding state of affairs?... :lol:

That is actually the illogical extreme. A single word snippet would likely drive commenters away, at least until some hardy soul put the separate words together into (at least) several paragraphs.

I would not try to make sense of a series of single word snippets; and Multiverse is currently my favorite series.
