Fellow Daoists, please read ISSTH Book 1, Chapter 45!

Although this chapter is not as "profound" as the last, I still really like it. Anyone who has been away from home for a long period of time can probably identify with how Meng Hao feels going back to Yunjie County after all these years. I myself have been in China for almost 5 years without ever going back home to visit, so I definitely know how it feels. In my mind this chapter really solidifies Meng Hao's character. Please enjoy:

Please read after the jump for a VERY special announcement

It is my pleasure to announce a special "50th Chapter Bonus Release!" As a way of saying thanks to everyone who has donated to ISSTH so far, I'm applying all those donations to bonus sponsored chapters to be included with the next release (Sunday night/Monday morning depending on where you live in the world). The release will have a total of 5 chapters (1 guaranteed, 3 sponsored, and 1 bonus free chapter from me). The next release will take us all the way to a milestone chapter 50, and will put us more than half way through Book 1.

So, stay tuned for a very special release in about 24 hours or so!
