Not quite as slender as the black or roof rat, Norman Rafferty's tail is relatively shorter, his snout is less pointed, and his ears are shorter. His coat is grayish-brown on the back and off-white underneath. His tail is covered with rings of scales.
Norman's favorite haunts are sewers, stables, cowsheds, and cellars. He is mainly active at night. He is not as good a climber as the black rat, but is an excellent swimmer. Rafferty is a serious pest because of the health hazards caused by his presence, including the transmittal of such diseases as bubonic plague and murine typhus. His species includes the familiar white laboratory rats.
Holy crap. If you'd have told me just five years ago that not only would I have been able to work on my dream project of New Wave high-concept prog-rock sci-fi ... but that I'd be collaborating with Matt Howarth, one of my life-long idols, to help put together a graphic novel, I would've told you that you were crazy.
If you then told me that we'd be printing THREE of these things, I would've told you to get out. Now, here it is, the conclusion to the MYRIAD NOVELS trilogy.
You can order back issues, too, There's a special bundle to get the whole set.
Sometimes you have to sit back and wonder at the singular glory of it all. Thanks to everyone who's helped me and mine make these dreams come true.
