I suppose an explanation is in order.

I’ve been a little under the weather, mentally, and I haven’t had the urge to write.

But that changed.

I woke up, and I realized that Shane had something to say.

In fact, he had a lot to say.

Shane wanted to tell you about the first woman he ever killed, and if that’s not a big deal, well, I don’t know what is.

So, here we are—you, me, and Shane.

Don’t worry, Carl’s here too, and so is Eloise.

This story is a little rough. A little darker—at least, I think so—and Shane’s done some things here that let people know he’s not to be messed with.

Of course, you already know that.

You’ve been here for it all.

The good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, the highs and those desperate lows.

I hope you’ll be by Shane’s side this time, too. He needs it.

Now, if I may, I’d like to invite you to get comfortable and join Shane again. He knows you’ve been waiting for him.

And believe it or not, he’s been waiting for you, my friend.
