    Also, the work of other, better writers will soon be coming to this blog!

    (SPOILER ALERT FOR THE ARBMEISTER)

    Aye, I had a lot of trouble making the description clear, and I didn't really succeed.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobius_strip

    The first picture there represents the curved part of the guitar's body. Notice that the edge of it is a single (deformed) circle. On an ordinary guitar, the corresponding piece has an edge consisting of two (deformed) circles, and each has a piece of wood (the front and back of the guitar) glued along its edge to one of these circles. Juja's guitar has a single piece of wood (the frack, or the bont) glued in a seriously warped way along the single circle.

    Oh crikey, on second reading Part 3 needs a serious copy editor. "I must except"?

    Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for: from beyond the grave....

    Maybe Part 5 of ANFC will be about necromancy.

    Parts 5 and 6 are up, for anyone interested. Beluapal vulgaris has made its first appearance, and it smells like the interior of its own ass!

    EDIT I should also add that another author, familiar to many of you, is sprinkling an essay-in-series into the mix. Check out "Graphology 101" at the same site. Also, arriving in the next few weeks will be another story-in-series from an author unknown to any of you. I've read some bits: it will be good.
