One In a Million

Several weeks ago, my good friend Jeffrey Channing Wells – yes, the co-author of the webcomic Skin Horse – mentioned to me that he’d been inspired enough by the world of Thirteen Ribbons to write a short story in it; not precisely fan-fiction, but another tale in the setting. I was eager to see what he’d come up with. He promised to e-mail me the first part and said that with my blessing he’d write more.

I was floored. In fact, I’m still floored, and a little intimidated. It’s a marvellous tale about another form of racing— no, more properly, it’s a tale about the sort of people involved in that other form of racing. So yes, he received my blessing, and I highly recommend that every fan of 13R read the results (though I must insist that if you’re not of age to read mature language and concepts where you live, please wait until you can, and then by all means do so.)
