We have reached the end of Cam's final work. Again, in case you are new to the site, and I'll be putting a permanent post up on the blog page somewhere prominent, Cam passed away summer of 2013.
My name is Slid (not really, but you can call me that.) and some time before he passed on he asked if I would curate his work on this blog. He wanted me to upload all of his work and make it freely available to everyone. He sent me a hard drive full of his work. I'm not sure that it contains everything he's ever done but it's what he saw fit to give me. Its a big hard drive, so there will be a lot of work eventually put up on this site.
My plan is to upload about 10 frames of his work each week on the usual post day starting now and continuing until I run out. These are mostly fragments of pages and sketches he's done. As I find stories I will be posting them in order so you can enjoy it as it was written. If there is a problem, let me know. And yes, I'm making backups, don't worry. I don't fully trust external hard drives.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Of course, I had originally planned on this story being about 30 pages long. But I kept getting new ideas.
The sequence where Mika slams Oko on the rock, for example, was a late addition, and required some reworking of pages both before and after.
I have, by rough estimate, twenty pages that I ended up dropping from this story.
Perhaps I'll be able to repurpose them.
I left the issue of Kalika's plans for revenge unresolved. I sort of know how I want that to go, but I don't know if I'll undertake it. That was another late addition that required changes, although not many.
Of course, I don't know if I'll even be alive by the time your read this. As of today, the cancer treatment is working – and working better than usual, according to my oncologist – but that's no guarantee that it will continue to work.
As I write this, there is also the chance, depending on the outcome of the presidential election, that I will lose coverage for my cancer treatment and have to stop. This is an issue with home state politics as well as national; it doesn't mean the same thing will have happened everywhere else.
This is far and away the longest catfight story I have ever attempted, or completed. As I've said before, I don't think I'll ever try one of this length again.
Again, thanks for your patience during 2012's interruption.
