"For me, my central concern is to what extent I want to protect my original vision versus giving the stories a hopping chance to live long (or forever) in the popular consciousness, a'la the works of Lovecraft or Dickens or any of the others, whose works would probably not survive to this day had they not slipped into the public domain and/or been deliberately opened up while they were still in the popular imagination."
That's a point I hadn't considered. My goal from day one has been to create monsters that join the cabal of American culture: Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Alien and Predator. The later two are relatively new additions, but their ubiquitousness and semi-open-sourcedness make for many stories and more exposure to the public. I had hoped the Ancestor would someday join this cabal. So far, not happening, but I've got a little time left before I poison the worms (hey, them bitches are gonna eat me? I got a little something planned for you, you uppity worms).
