Lightning Water, the slipstream gothic brainchild of M. S. Lewis, has entered production here at the Stikmantica publishing facility. In other words, the task of formatting the text for print has begun. It is happening at the small table here in Stikmanz Intergalactic HQ where varieties of publishing activity materials rise to precarious heights of organic architecture. Progress, as in all things Stikmantic, is in fits and starts. Somehow, in the tiny spans between interruptions, work gets done.
