Tonight, since markgritter has finished his read of Thermionic Night, I have decided to share with you my secret to writing novel endings. Here it is: "And all of them who were still alive ran away to Canada."
There you go. Use it in good health. It's uplifting, I find. Of course, I won't get to this uplifting ending until I've revised TN and Sampo and drafted the rest of Midnight Sun Rising, but never mind that now.
