    Baxter Epilogue

    Well, anyone reading Chapter 18 would also see a link to the Epilogue at the end of that.
  2. The Epilogue to Colin's Baxter is posted but not directly linked. You need to click the link to the story on the Codey's World home page, which takes you to the chapter index where there's a link to the Epilogue. (I posted this here because for some reason I don't have the option to either reply or start a new topic on the Codey's World Forum.)
  3. On my 27" iMac running OS Mojave it works just as Talo says. The text gets larger, but the area in which it appears doesn't, so no horizontal scrolling is necessary. Same on both Safari and Firefox, and also works this way on iPad/Safari.

    Story genre?

    That was my favorite part of the Peacher series until Son of the Chav Prince came along. I enjoyed many of the other stories, but my interest waned as the supernatural angle became more central. A not-my-cup-of-tea kind of thing. But Arram is a master at characterization, and Son of the Chav Prince is both very funny and extremely touching. Both should be read together to get a full appreciation of both characters and their connection in the later story.
  5. Because Kevin is quite obviously Colin's alter ego. He's thoroughly organized, methodical and uses all the latest digital tools and devices with expertise to aid him in being so. How is that not like Colin?
  6. Pssst... Rutabaga did on June 25:

    Electricity by M

    Your link took me to chapter 3. This one should theoretically go to 1: http://www.niftyarchive.org/nifty/gay/beginnings/electricity/electricity-1
  8. There's something about those words that seems to confound the system. Searching for the title here, even omitting the question mark, gets me zero results, regardless of what options or boolean operators I use. When a site's search function is cranky I usually have luck with a Google site-specific search (e.g., to search here you'd enter site:forums.awesomedude.com after your search terms) which, among other things, accepts full phrase searches when you use enclosing quotation marks. But for Who Is It I came up blank on Google, too. But with any other thread title, I had success both here and with Google. Update: Additional testing. Searching here for who is it by graeme got this thread as the first hit. Searching the same terms, both with and without quotes and/or question mark comes up with nothing. Doing a regular, non-site Google search for "who is it by graeme" gets hits for the story on the main site but nothing from the forums.
  9. We didn't have any fun like this on our class trip to the California State Capitol in 1960. A group of primary school children toured the Houses of Parliament this week thanks to their guide, Watford MP Richard Harrington. The children had an opportunity to grill Mr Hamilton before lunch. I would have preferred fricasseeing, but that's just me.
  10. Oh, ha, sorry, my thanks were aimed rather sloppily. I had desired to thank you for enjoying my story and Colin for calling attention to it. No, I wasn't Codey's editor, just a user of the site and participant in the forum. When Corey, another user, posted that list of words it gave me the idea of seeing if I could work them all into a story.
  11. Oddsbodikins, I'd completely forgotten about that! My file copy shows that it was almost exactly ten years ago, March 2007. The Codey's World Forums were a fun place. In fact, my naming my protagonist "Sir Yea of Verilyforsooth" stemmed from a good-natured contretemps Codey and I had there over whether "yeah" should be spelled "yeah" or "yea." He favored "yea," and I countered that there already was a word so spelled and was pronounced as in the phrase "yea, verily, forsooth." He wasn't convinced, and I hit on this name as a sort of gentle tweak. Thanks for bringing it back!
  12. Where is that video? If it's the one in Lugnutz's post, it's private.

    Jamie's Buddy

    Makes Jamie's character growth plausible. Some of that we - who have read the earlier SS stories - can infer from his merely having gained a couple years since we first heard him as a non-stop potty-mouth. But the set-up for his bigger epiphany was great plotting. More than that gets into spolier-land, but I think if you've read the story you'll know what I mean. And lots of funny and clever by-play along the way.
  14. I think I confused things by using quotation marks; ignore them. Neither example is character dialog; in both it's the narrator speaking.
