When I returned to this story last month I told myself that if I ever needed to go away again I would end the story. It has come to that folks. I have to admit that I cannot anymore give the consistency writing this story the way I’m doing now requires so I will do the next best thing which is to conclude it and make a composite volume available on the site for sale.

The reason I always said the story would never end was that I knew that so long as there was current affairs and Mr Cosmas was still a character there would always be something to tell. But the demands of everyday life plus a genuine desire to do something different have now combined to bring about this decision to put paid to Number 225.

I will keep the council of elders alive here and create a platform for Mr Cosmas to continue to express his views.

So on to the next chapter we move.
