Then, I went on to write seven more- the last being I, Neil! Part of what made me go deeper into the Deadland was the passion and enthusiasm of readers. So while I have not gone back to the Deadland after I, Neil, several readers have asked me the same question you have. While I don't have a concrete idea in mind right now, I suspect I will be lured back to the Deadland for one more adventure- provided there are readers willing to join me or another nighttime raid, another skirmish and another battle against the odds.

cheers
