Carnivale at Tabulit

I started serializing Carnivale: a Kit Kaleidoscope Story over at Tabulit awhile ago. Since then, Tabulit has undergone some changes and lost some people. So now I’m in charge of uploading my own pages. And I’ve done so today. Tabulit used to be a pay site, but now it just asks you to help sponsor the site and its creators. …

The print edition is nice (and I prefer print personally), but the pdf is cheaper. $9.99 versus $19.95.
