If ya gotta go, go in style, i suppose!

I think I've been restraining myself pretty well - so here's another Better Call Saul-inspired Newspost.

As I wait anxiously for the final handful of episodes to this show to appear, my mind has gone back over the series and ...

Wonder

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, June 19, 2022



Gonna take another pause from the fantastic bestiary on this Sunday’s article and instead talk about wonder in fiction. First off, what is wonder?
