Diane Duane's 'The Big Meow'

Welcome to the glitzy, murky world of 1946 Hollywood, a smoggy film-noir landscape filled with glamourous starlets, flamboyantly corrupt studio heads, and wicked, pampered cats with hidden agendas; a city of unsolved murders, snoopy screenwriters, scheming PR flacks, and a shadowy, celebrity-ridden cult dabbling in knowledge better left alone -- knowledge which could destroy the world's present and doom its future, if the dreadful promise of the Year of the Black Jaguar is fulfilled...

Chapter Four at last

If I started detailing the number of hardware, software and lifeware glitches I've suffered through in the last two weeks, I'd be here all day...and I have a lot of things to catch up on right now: so never mind. ...Anyway, just a note to those of you who're The Big Meow subscribers and may not have seen a mail from me yet: Chapter Four is finally in place (and incidentally about twice the length of previous chapters).

Please use your Chapter Three login info: the chapter 3 gateway page has the links to Chapter Four. If you've misplaced your login info (I've had mails from a few of you about this), just mail me with the word ACCESS in the subject line and I'll remail you what you need.

The disruptions of the last couple weeks have meant that the turn-in dates for the next few chapters are going to have to be revamped with an eye to making up the lost time. Please keep an eye on the weblog for details of the dates.
