I love serials. I have over 250 pulp mags to prove it with (Hugo winning) classics such as the Duplicated Man, ...And Call Me Conrad, Three Hearts and Three Lions, Nightwings, A Time of Changes, Dune <--- Dune Messiah <--- and more. You can't beat serials. All of my WIPs are serials and will be published as such. Thank you for noticing this "new" trend.
