The missing chapter 45 is now cooked. You can find it here https://camestrosfelapton.wordpress.com/2021/06/26/debarkle-chapter-45-the-reviews/
It had reached a point earlier in the week where it was two chapters and was spiralling out of control. So I cut down on the range of reviewers I was using (apologies to anybody cut) and I refocussed things to mainly three categories (Short Story, Best Related Work and Best Novel) which I think covered most of the dynamic.
There were, of course, no typos or grammatical errors when I finished. If you find any, somebody else must have put them in there afterwards.
