Hall of Mirrors is COMPLETE… sort of.

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

We’ve just linked the “final” episode of Hall of Mirrors by Mike Bennett. Why the quotes? Well, Mike is taking a “season” or “volume” approach to the Hall. He’s considering these first 12 episodes complete, but should be returning after a few months to bring us a fresh batch of stories.
