Ms. Braun--Carole K. is right. You can't leave us like this. We want to know how the story continues. Koko, Yum Yum and Qwil are like members of our families and we want to know what happened to them. Maybe we could all write a rough outline of how we hoped the story would end? We could decide what ending was our favorite. Maybe it could even end up as a book . I hate leaving Qwil and the cats swirling in space and Polly living somewhere in Europe. Lets try, please.

I loved the whole series. I loved Koko and Yum Yum. Quilleran and Polly.
I was devastated after the last one. Destroying the barn, Polly going off to France, etc. Whatever happened to the German Shrank?? You can't leave me like this!

Lilian - Could you buy back the rights to _Smoke_? That way you can do what Diane Duane is doing - self-publishing! (look up _The Big Meow_ to see why.) I'm sure that if you contacted her, she could possibly help you set that book up for self-publication so that we fans could read it!
p.s: I agree with Dave -- I remember that the "employer" on the show that made Tom Selleck famous also dictated his books, and I was thinking you could do the same thing!

A small framed, lithe young woman ran down the rocky path screaming as she skimmed the hard packed dirt, leaping over rocks as she descended a hill. Her short hair was plastered to her head as if wet, and her face contorted in fear. She reached the bottom of the hill and nearly threw herself into an awaiting car, jamming a key into the ignition and hitting herself in the face with a purse on her arm as she tossed it into the passenger seat. She cranked the car, moved the shifter quickly into reverse, and headed down a small winging narrow country road at break neck speed. She was shaking, and with unstable hands, groped for a cellular phone on the car seat beside her. She dialed a number by memory and when it picked up a well modulated deep voice said hello. Qwill, oh Qwill I am so glad you picked up, this is Hixie and I have just had the most terrifying experience of my life Qwill. I am coming over……..get a drink ready, she stammered and yelled into the phone. I have just been to the Hilltop Cemetary and I was chased by a monster, a bigfoot, you should have seen him Qwill, my heart is beating so fast. The calm voice at the other end of the line said, Hixie, slow down your car and calm down before you have a wreck, come on over and we can talk about it. I will have your drink waiting for you.
Jim Qwilleran, richest man in the northern United States,a nd noted newspaper columnist, hung up the phone and turned to koko and said, koko, that was Hixie, she has met bigfoot, and I don’t mean your old friend Bootsey aka Brutus either.

I have bought the rights to the Cat Who series and am currently raising funds to make a movie. I will cast myself in the title role. I have secured a screen play writer and he is exploring the possibility of setting the movie on the space station, rather than upper Michigan. The cats will be robots or replaced by dogs.

Apparently I am the only person who thought TCW Had 60 Whiskers was an unfinished story. But I was looking forward to reading TCW Smelled Smoke. So sad it has been cancelled. I thought it would be fun to have a murder at a motorcycle meet (maybe in Brr?) and title it TCW Went Hog Wild.
