The phone rang and I got a chill. The police in Oquaka called. My cabin had been ransacked and there were signs of a struggle. Would there have been anyone there, they asked.

Clyde Dawkins was in town. He needed a peaceful place to finish the last chapter of his new novel, Hell Fire And Brimstone, the Villainesses Of Pop Culture. It was sure to be a hit.

"Oh my god, where's Clyde?"

"They must have been casing your cabin.”

Stay by the phone, that advice sucked. It's been six weeks, and there's been no sign of the big guy.

    But it's only been two days. Are you saying we need to wait another 40 days before we even have the chance to find out where he went? Or should we simply read Clyde's comment below?
