A BIG thank you to everyone who read High Noon and encouraged me to continue writing the saga! It started out as one of a series of themed explanations for the delay in announcing the contest winner, and then assumed a life of its own. And refused to die!

Special thanks to:

Alex - for allowing me to poke gentle (?) fun at him - for enduring a delay not of his choosing, and for agreeing to allow the contest winner to be announced in the final episode of High Noon.

Bratzzo - who rode out of the sunset into town and produced the stunning cover art and map that will adorn the final ebook version,
speaking of which,

Dave - who is compiling the ebook to make it available to members who want to load it onto their readers,

Verencat - for her splendid translation in the final section - to honor our winner's home country,

Zelda - for her willingness to discuss my ideas for the final episode, and to assist with the translation [can we lean on her for a French version of the entire saga? once she finishes her pesky real world chores of course] [hint, hint]

And, of course, last but not least, to
filip - for being transformed into filip le fortunate! Congrats and enjoy!


and to the readers who volunteered ideas for the plot, and themselves as characters. If I did not include you in the saga, and you were too bashful to volunteer yourself, rest assured there will most certainly be future contests and writings that will need characters for the starring roles.

I read and appreciated all the daily comments that accompanied High Noon - you wrote a saga of your own!

Thank you for keeping yours truly and the MR masses thoroughly entertained while we waited on pins and needles for the announcement of the winner! You may never know how many lives you saved from potential rioting from this impatient & unruly mob.
Agree. Thanks Poohbear! You put a lot of time and effort into your High Noon saga. I very much enjoyed and appreciated the regular contributions of it on this thread. Well done.
