Hi Scott,

I was very happy to hear that TUC is scheduled for Summer 2017, this will be immense.
Great Ordeal is about 500 pages of narrative in book form. Do you think TUC will be around 400 pages of story to wrap it up, or is it basically the same size as The Great Ordeal with 500 pages of narrative?

Secondly, what size do you think the encyclopedic glossary will end up being? In TTT it was nearly 100 pages.

I'm just pulling all the materials together now, so the question is one that's been niggling me as well. Before, I would have agreed with your estimate, but I've since added four chapters, as well as reams of new material for the Glossary. This will be a big book, never fear Mith!

Great stuff Scott!

It is rumored that thicker and longer is inherently better...

I just hope we'll remember TUC not based on how big it is but what Bakker was able to do with it

Unlikely that it won't be remembered for the contents given how much is being unleashed in these final two volumes.
I'll happily take a bit more page count to see it filled out, you only get to publish it once. As long as it does not affect the release date, and since that is already set, it's all good.

I know, joke fail.

Let's try that again:

Is the text of the novel complete and being revised or is it still in progress?
