- The Finger Pointing Solward has been anxiously awaited ever since the publication of Courtship Rite. Kingsbury has never quite finished the story, noting as far back as 1984 that he was still 'polishing' it (see interview with Robert Sawyer) and as recently as the Readercon biography notes in July 2006. Artist Donato Giancola placed a copy of the intended cover on his gallery page. In 1994, an excerpt was published as "The Cauldron".
