Or just start the next book with him coming out of the shower saying, "My, that was a vivid dream".

Oooooo, I like this one. It seems to be less scary than the first one.

He is one of my son's favorite writers also. He has been collecting them since high school and also loves them because of Sean Dillon.

Here's the last bit from "His Master's Gun". (I'm doing this from memory because I destroyed the story along with everything else )

--------------------------------------

They were dead. Everyone I loved, had loved was gone and all in one stinking, blood soaked night.

Soon I'd join them.

The bullet had missed the spine and lodged deep in my brain. Too hard too take out the Docs told me. I'd get another five years if I didn't move too much.

That wasn't living.

Dressed, I heeled it out of the hospital toward a fine, fog-free San-Francisco morning. I never did say goodbye to the docs. Never did sign that sheet out front.

Somewhere on the lost and empty streets of the city, a dog barked.

But it wasn't my dog.

And never would be.

what's the visual equivalent of shouting "LALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU" ?

seriously though, that story, if it even exists (i haven't read it...), could happen 250 years in the future for all i know. i'm sure Finch has a very long and full life in between, which i would love to hear about.

i think you're just thinking too hard about it all at the moment.

anyway, write whatever you're in the mood to write ; i think we'll all be happy to read it.

Dude, this one is scary. Getting too many "Japanese horror movie" vibes from this cover.

With the long, black hair stuff. Definitly need you to make a cover for me if I ever getting around to finish my novel
