It seems that is no longer the question, it is the current cultural staple. I believe it is a statement from the readers that they do not want their favorite stories to end. There can be no more endings like in The Lady or the Tiger.
I can think of more examples of endings that make the reader think about what happened, but those examples left me disappointed. Until recently, Star Wars was like that for me. Now, I will find out what happens over five more episodes. And for those of you who think I am on that side of the fence, I am also anticipating the new Star Trek movie as well. I truly am all that is nerd.
I was asked when would I be getting around to writing the trilogies for Dead Heart, and what would the next two books be called.
I heard myself saying that I had no plans to write trilogies, but inside, I was wondering. The friend I was speaking to made the argument that I should reconsider.
Since then, I have been. So this is my question for the readers here, do you prefer trilogies? or anthologies?
I look forward to your replies.
