Family means never having to pay for the inevitable therapy after commit atrocious horrors against one another. This week, I explore formulaic plots, and the benefit and glory of not killing your big bads but letting them get away for a few more books. I also wax fondly over other series I loved like Thursday Next and Pine Deep.
