Keen-eyed observers of my Multiglom blog (if there are any) might recall that back in 2012, I wrote a Novel in Progress post about THE COMING THING, on which I had been working since the mid-1990s. Well, THE COMING THING is finished at last. Or at least as finished as it’s ever going to get. It’s massively flawed in such fundamental ways that I doubt it can ever be fixed, but I think it’s still quite readable, so I’m taking a publish-and-be-damned attitude. I need to move on.
