LB, your writing skills are so good! Apart from managing to bring me feeling Alicia's and Alan's angst myself, you also managed to splendidly depict the Mediterranean aspect in which I've been born and brought up! I could almost smell Sicily's air which is a neighbor island of mine! Your ability to entwine your own story with the real episode was awesome and your descriptions too! Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I've always thought that "BC Island" was intended to resemble Sicily. Episodes 31 and 81 always did leave a lot of questions in my mind about that nameless #2 Devil Star, born into Galactor, who liked to race cars. Her situation was so similar to Joe's, but with some key differences too.

Ib, I really liked this. Its one of those areas where you knew there had to be more to the story. I liked reading how Joe and Alan met.
Any plans to write one regarding Joe's return to BC Island?
Author's Response: Thank you! Vague ideas for a sequel are floating around in my head -not sure what will come of them yet, though.

You've done a terrific job on this! I love the way you've taken two relatively minor characters, and really fleshed out their background, as well as their shared backgrounds with Joe. You have brought a whole new dimension to these episodes.
Author's Response: Thanks! Definitely minor characters -one didn't even have a name! But, it was interesting to use their perspectives and to try to come up with a story to supplement and explain the canon facts in eps 31 and 81 (and ep 78 too). I think it's Ken's line in ep 81, "Joe, it looks like this priest knew who Joe the Condor was," that first got me thinking...
