Early morning, still dark outside, the world quiet. I was sliding back into deeper slumber after a wakeful moment. A phone rings; I answer. An old friend.
“Wondering when the next episode of Knives is coming out,” he says.
Another voice, another old friend. “It’s been a while.”
The next voice is from one of the Kansas Bunch. “Whatever happened to Munchies?” she asks.
“And Monster,” another voice says, close enough to the project to use the shorthand name.
More voices, now with faces. Writers, readers. “Wait a minute,” I ask, “Is this an intervention?”
