As I soon found, a blog’s chronological structure does not work well to post serial fiction because that is not at all what it was designed for. I was painting myself into a corner faster than usual. I removed the chapters previously published as blog posts and consolidated them all on a single page with a table of contents.
Chapter 3 “Voyage East” is now posted together with the previous two chapters on one page. As I am continuing with this project, I am toying with ideas for a better title, so any clever suggestions are welcome. The current front runner is “Pandora’s Last Gift.” That sounds bodice-rippery enough I suppose.
