Well, I've finally concluded A Meating of Mines, and not a moment too soon. Now what do I do? I wasn't planning to continue with the series, but I've got plans that will probably disappear if I don't keep thinking about the series. On the other hand, I had some good ideas for Torus too. I was thinking about changing the title to Planetary-Scale Artifact because the story centers around something that appears to be, hold on, a planetary-scale artifact. And then I had a great idea for a treasure-hunting story. That one would be my top choice except that it would require a lot of research and I'm not sure I can commit the time to it.
