For Readers: Overarching Plots

Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Hank T. Cannon:

Do you like “overplots” in your sci-fi/fantasy? Do you like your novels/series purely self contained, or do you want each book to advance a larger plot?

It’s a great question. For me, it depends. I like to know, going in, that it’s a series if the book I am reading is gonna end on a cliffhanger. Otherwise, it can be really abrupt when you reach the end of a realluy good read and realize the author hasn’t published the next one yet. *glares at Albert Nothlit*

But as long as I know, I’m good.
