There are a lot of Armitage stories in the collected stories books.  'Yes,
but today is *Tuesday*', for instance...  But I don't remember any specific
sequel to any of them, except that the  Armitage family is a thread running
through them all.

If there is a sequel, I want to know as well!  And if you find that book
from the dream, please may I borrow it?
