.... a whole bunch of stories started some time ago and abandoned for various reasons. Done with photosynthetic cats; on to a man who sets oil refineries on fire. After that, the encounter between Jebe, Genghis Khan's general, and aurora borealis. And after that -- actually, a tossup between deadly game of marbles, clowns caught in a worldwide flood, and a Crimean war veteran and fistulas. Suggestions are welcome.
