Big problem: This pdf is backwards. Page 1 is at the bottom and page 20 is at the top. The actual page numbers are correct, so the printout should be OK. For online reading: Start at bottom page and work up to the top. All pages are in order.

how red & addie got back together in the future

The story, "How Red and Addie Morgan Got Back Together in the Future" tumbled out in words and style I don't recognize as mine. Lucky thing, because the chapter I intended for BWW needs another month or two or rethinking and rewriting.
