Author's Comment: Alcatraz was written as a writing experiment, not as something that I was intending to publish. As the series grew more serious to me, meaning that I developed what I actually wanted to happen – which with me usually happens as I write book two of a series, when I sit down and build an arc for the entire series – I "realified" Alcatraz's world a little bit, if that makes sense, made it its own substantial thing.
