A long time ago Nigel Atkinson's Night Land novella A Mouse in the Walls of the Lesser Redoubt was complete on the original version of this site; but our original editor, the late Andy Robertson, took the complete story down and left a teaser up, for the publication of Night Lands Volume I: Eternal Love. The Night Lands printed books (there was also a Night Lands Volume II: Nightmares of the Fall) were print-on-demand, and never cheap. Now, since the publisher of Night Lands Volume II, Paul Brazier of Three Legged Fox, has also died, the second volume is sometimes unavailable altogether.

I've decided to bring A Mouse in the Walls of the Lesser Redoubt back here to the website in its entirety. (Mr. Atkinson, if you should stumble across this, I don't have your email address.) I'm working on it presently.

I have a few other existing works to bring back, and I'm going to get to work on them. I want the website stories to be complete (except for John C. Wright's stories, which he has republished in his ebook Awake in the Night Land).

The Internet Archive has taken to archiving this site on the Wayback machine, but so far I haven't been able to turn it up on the Wayback search without giving the domain name '', unfortunately. There is a copy of Andy's version of the site (the domain was from 2007.

I liked, and still like, the look of the old version. The only reason I switched is it's all HTML. I spent some time maintaining that version before Andy died, and the site had gotten big enough to be a formidable amount of work, and had a fair amount of cruft because it needed that much work. So I moved to a Content Management System. But finding the old one somewhere besides my hard drive brings back good memories.
