The eighth chapter of Ishta’s Companion has escaped custody. It was last seen on the web.
Chapter Nine is paid for and written and should appear next week.
Chapter Ten is neither written nor paid for, but I’m about halfway through writing it.
I’m going to be traveling later this month and into October, and if Chapter Ten is written and paid for, I can’t guarantee it’ll be posted as fast as usual, and there probably won’t be the usual flood of announcements.
