Not at all sure how I feel about this

Alan Garner is finishing the Weirdstone Trilogy. "I have no expectations, none," as Stoppard's Guildenstern said (unless it was Rosencrantz.) But what happened to Susan, if Colin's the only one left in this mortal realm? wibble wibble

(Garner, famously, is the writer who never ever wrote the book I wanted him to. The Moon of Gomrath was followed by Elidor; Elidor was followed by The Owl Service (aka 'what these people need is a limey'); The Owl Service was followed by Red Shift and its unlikable self-pitying rapist protagonist. After that I gave up on Garner. So yes, mixed feelings here.)
