Please do.

Jesse Willey pretty much adopted my old characters and plotlines, which
is fine, most of the time; by the same token, he's not so good with
exposition and so sometimes, unless you've read TEENFACTOR, you won't
have as good of a handle on the characters. But, at the same time, I
don't want anyone to have to read through TEENFACTOR.

My solution?  Later this year, I will write a resource document
detailing the continuity and history of the characters, and pointing
out the half-dozen issues that might be worth reading.  A little
resource document I'll call--


I dunno.  It might be a little too masturbatory or masochistic, or
perhaps even a little bit of both. :-)

Tom Russell didn't write Teenfactor at all.  The "Tom Russell" of
1997-2000, who kept trying to curry Dvandom's favour, was in fact
wReamicus Maximus in disguise!

Saxon covered this in the DEATH OF CHEESECAKE-EATER LAD mini.
