We'll have to agree to disagree on this one then :-) for me both reasons
are extremely compelling. I'm trying with this series to emulate a
"real" (call it "professional" or "commercial" if you want) serial.
Space being constant is absolutely mandatory in that case, and ending in
a cliffhanger is pretty much necessary...
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
