Actually, he was brought back at the end of # 1.  But it wasn't clear
enough, and what I really should have done was pick up with that right
away at the beginning of # 2, to reiterate the idea.  # 1 I'm happy
with; # 2 I'm not so happy with.  # 3 is shaping up nicely, though;
it's really what I should have done, more or less, with # 2, gets the
story moving.  :-)

Hmm.  That's something for me to work on.
