Chapter 18 is up. You can find it here. For the next two chapters we’ll be shifting the location of the story to New York City. Of all the locales where the story takes place, New York is the one I know the least well. So if you’re from New York or know the city well and you spot any errors, feel free to let me know; and if you have a suggestion for how to correct the problem, that would be great as well. In any event, I hope you enjoy Chapter 18. As always, comments are welcome at the end of the chapter.
