Twenty-Two - On a Clear Day


     And speak of the Devil!

     Not that Eulatti's the Devil around these parts--that would be ol' Scratch about whom Tharka spoke on Friday. But this is the 666th update here since the Big Contest began, something I find a little scary to contemplate.

     And I also find it scary that each of the last batch of stories has had spiders in it. It's almost as if this whole Fourth Book of Daily Grind is concerning itself with matters among the Fair Folk, possibly leading up to some sort of Ragnarokian event during storyline #24, the next storyline whose number is evenly divisible by six....

     Oh, and it looks like Doc's got a fancier sort of speech synthesizer to replace the one he broke when he first met Coil back in the twentieth storyline, "Hypocrisy."
