Cliffhanger

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:07 PM

This afternoon's post

"… If the cliffhanger is done well, it will not
simply introduce a wholly unprepared turn
into the narrative (a random death, a new character,
an entirely unanticipated obstacle) but rather
tighten the configuration of known elements…."

— Michel Chaouli in "How Interactive Can Fiction Be?"

This evening's Los Angeles Times obituary for Gary Hammer—

"He had been called the Indiana Jones of horticulture,
 breaking his leg while hanging from a cliff in Mexico…."

For commentary on the first obituary above,
see Odin's Day (Wednesday, August 31).

"An unlikely story? Perhaps."
— Hans Furth, quoted here on
the date of Hammer's death (Sunday, August 7)
