Made this one over the summer and tweaked the sequencing a little bit more recently.

I'm only a casual fan of both Stephen King and his Dark Tower series, but I was, oddly, influenced on some small level by the fourth book in the series, Wizard and Glass, which I was reading during much of the time I was fiddling with this mix. The ill portent of the harvest time "demon moon" hangs heavy over the book's climax, and somehow played a part in some of my choices.

With the weather turning cooler around here, it just seemed like a great time to finally finish this one.

Well, I thought I'd visit the old home place and it was great to see a familiar face.
