Much delayed, the unlikely sequel to Coyote finally emerges into the light of day – this is Sahana’s tale.

Inside Straight may be downloaded here.



Disclaimer: I had no intention of writing a sequel to Coyote, had made no provision for one, plot-wise – but a certain sombreroed character gave me no peace, kept nagging me about loose ends. So I set about it, even though OXP work kept interfering. However, what I present here today ain’t anything like the sequel I started out to write. That had got to about halfway, when a character slapped me round the face one morning and gave me a good talking-to. Rarely one to naysay a beautiful woman, most especially an angry one, I deleted the whole thing there and then, thereby washing my hands of it – or so I thought. Of course, the nagging continued – on and off – so eventually I gave-in and started again from scratch. But this time, I wrote what I was told to write – bizarre though it is!

Any discontinuities and/or eccentricities are only to be expected – the space/time continuum known as the Ooniverse, of which I attempt to write, can be unpredictable.

Health advisory: may contain nuts, occasional profanity, abused ellipses.

I must be psychic.

The first time I come to the forum for ages and you've released a new one. About 1 hour after posting.

Downloading now and knowing me, will be finished reading tomorrow.

Looking forward to it.

Excellent writing, and a very fitting sequel to Coyote.

About time too! Right, I'm off... new things to do, new places to go. I'm being transported to a mysterious parallel universe, you see... a dangerous universe where the physics is arse-about-face. Still, they've promised me a fully-functional smart AI to do everything, fly the ship, etc... all I gotta do is sit back and enjoy the ride!

Ha! The words "Safe trip" and "Coyote" don't belong on the same paragraph never mind the same sentence! Haven't you read the Oofic or played the OXP :lol:

I think you must be getting soft in your old age, Cody.. that one only brought a thumpin' great lump to my throat! :wink:

VERY well done. I thoroughly enjoyed your little sequel. 8)
