Slowly but surely, the new world that Arizona finds herself in is unfolding. In the final scene of Episode Three: Purgatory, we followed her back into her hometown, which was a fairly typical post-apocalyptic scene. As Arizona continues, I think you’ll find that such things are only one aspect of a complex and multifaceted new environment on Earth. I wouldn’t be doing my job if Arizona didn’t hold a few surprises!
Speaking of which, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank you for your generous and loyal support to the Westward endeavor. Thanks to you, Westward has a fighting chance to not only continue, but to expand into new and exciting territory in the future as more and more readers follow your example. Thank you! -e
