I've always enjoyed titles that began with and, and the small references to MC&D and Legacy help it fill out the world. I like this as long as it's going somewhere.

Is that a request for a sequel?
Not sure what the subject would be… though if the Rainbow Serpent's still stuck under Uluru…
Not necessarily a sequel, But you have set yourself up with some interesting characters and events. The thing that drew me into this whole Foundation universe was the way everything was interconnected; stories could be about entirely different events, but still have a common thread or line of thought. It can be overdone, but when it's done well it's worth it.
Well, Peri is definitely going to appear in quite a few stories, and Walmajarri will probably be mentioned in anything I write taking place in Australia (and maybe places nearby). And since lately the Nigerian lava cats have ended up around Indonesia…
A bit long-winded, but definitely good enough for an upvote.
Next time I write something long, I'll either stick it in collapsible fields or take a page from the new journal pages and do it day by day or entry by entry. Don't know how I'd upload The Bat King, but I'm sure I can figure out something for that.
Around the time this was initially posted, I was lurking around the site for the first time, and this was the first ever article that I've read. I have to say, not only is this a fantastic and memorable story, but for me it captures perfectly that sense of wonder that the Library is all about. Excellent work.
When the speaker mentions vanishing into the Ways, is it referring to the Ways that lead to the Library? And if so, does this mean than the Ways can be opened by certain individuals from anywhere?
Not exactly. The way Peristrixalo works in my head (and in the stories that he's in, but it's not all written out yet explicitly) is that he can travel conceptually rather than spatially. Since both places (Walmajarri's location and the location of the last thylacine) are in the desert, and in Oceania to boot, traveling from one to the other is fairly simple.
