^True, I'm not saying it absolutely proves it's part of a serial. But it does give some indication that it's not a completely self-contained text. And like I said, "The Fall" suggests it's a story about a specific event, whereas the others just suggest stories about organizations.
Can I get you to comment on whether The Fall
is meant to be a serial novel
or a series of novels
? There's a huge difference here. If you're arguing that it should be obvious that The Fall
is a serial novel, then I'm blown away, because nothing before has suggested such.
