Lester has given me snippets of some of his early drafts of the book dating back to the early nineties. I have preserved them here.
- Gorj. This is about one chapter similar to Chapter 1 of Welltower: First Run. Significant differences include that Father actually forces the main character, Tahn, into the hallway, and that Mother seems just as evil as Father.
- Well's End. Four paragraphs. Eald throws a stone into the Shaft.
- Life on the Edge. Nine short paragraphs. Takes place outdoors. Seems to have little relationship to the Welltower series.
