  2. An alternative title; THE APOCRYFAN.
    There is another longer novella in the LAST BALCONY hardback collection:
    YESTERFANG (a real word): https://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/yesterfang/

  3. An extended quote from THE APOCRYFAN (THE APOCRYPHAN) quoted independently in 2008.

    This novella appeared in various draft forms on-line prior to that date.

    Just read here: http://mantoucan.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/the-last-balcony-real-time-review.html :-
    “…in ‘The Apocryphan’, Bonnyville seems like a place one could genuinely stroll around, dig behind, poke around in; there’s an authentic sense of place. And the characters that inhabit this novella are three-dimensional too. The fact that the story is told in many interrelated brief sections, rather than as a single clump, also helps to open out the piece still further and lighten it more; or perhaps the structure was necessitated by the spry content (the tone is spry, but it is dark sprightliness.) And yes, the mode is melancholy despite the briskness; and the briskness is luxurious, not hectic; and this peculiar mix of rates of flow and density of detail is handled with supreme skill.”
