From a newsgroup post dated June 15, 2008, which I’m taking slightly out of sequence:
So I was mulling over possibly drastically rewriting a key scene in Sorcerer’s Justice, and I ran it past Julie, the only other person in the world who’s read the first draft of Sorcerer’s Justice, explaining the changes I was considering, and why.
She thought about it for a moment, then said, “It would cut down on the blood and gore.”
I agreed that it would.
“That can’t be good,” she said.
Note: “Sorcerer’s Justice” was eventually published as A Young Man Without Magic.
