A production note: The entirety of Chapter Two that you're reading now has been re-texted from scratch from the original versions that used to be up here. What is on the web now matches up (with minor modifications) to what is in the printed book. So if you're wondering why the texting quality suddenly jumps up around here and then drops down a bit in Chapter Three, you now know.
This also means that if you got partway through Chapter Two, you might want to start over. The text is easier to read now, both visually and narratively.
