    Was the rough draft published?

    I really enjoyed the stories. The concept of this book was very interesting. It seems that someone definately needs to review the rules for the usage of commas though, among other things. I spent so much time doing the editor's job that I had to re-read the story because I had forgotten what it was about. Oh, and by the way, on page 214 the conjunctivae are colorless membranes that cover and protect the eyes. The white of the eye is called the sclera. Even my twelve year old knows that.
