Requeried Venom--it has revised chapters.

Somehow my comment from Monday didn't get saved. 5.20.13- I've heard back from Mr. Spitzer. He said he considered on asking a full for Venom, but he let my April requery wind up in "old mail" by accident. He liked the concept and thought the story idea was intriguing. Right now, he's behind on his reading and can't take on anymore. Oh well.

Best wishes,
