Chapter 30 of Magician's Merger is up.
This one took longer to write than I had hoped.
The story Arthur's mom tells is similar to one my mom told me. I've changed a few of the details. I'm sure my mom believed what she had said.
Yes, there are similarities between Arthur's mom and my own, but there are also a lot of differences. Most of my characters have in them pieces of people that I knew, but many things get changed. Sometimes more than one person gets combined.
Some of the properties of the cantankerous younger brothers were drawn from me.
