I never got a good answer as to what happened or where he was all that time, and he never regained consciousness. Someone searching for what happened might make an interesting story.(less)

I’ve finished the first draft of The King of Hearts: Part 4 of the Red Dog Conspiracy. But completing a first draft is just the beginning.
