- The Finger Pointing Solward has been awaited ever since the publication of Courtship Rite. Kingsbury has never finished the story, noting as far back as September 1982 that he was still "polishing" it (see interview with Robert J. Sawyer) and as recently as his self-supplied Readercon biography 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."
