'Tallus Laney's Borderland Diary' started life as a novel which never got published. In fact there are two complete novels written, and a third about 30% complete. I then adapted them as a weekly ongoing graphic story which survived 48 episodes before the paper ran out of space. I have now adapted the first novel for the internet. I hope you like it.
