I've also posted the novel's historical note (at any rate, the portions of the historical note that don't provide spoilers for the first part of the novel), this being the final installment of "Unmarked." I hope to publish the *first* story in the Waterman series next year, "Master and Servant 1: The Abolitionist." The first scene in that story has been posted for a while now.

In the meantime, I'm taking a short break before the holidays. I'll be back at the end of December with my gift holiday story and with a new online serialization.
