“In theory, it seems like a good thing when a story we have really enjoyed carries on and on. It means we get more, and that’s what all readers want, mostly. We point at something we enjoyed a great deal and say more, please! Some artists are cranky and say ‘What? No, I already did that, now I want to do something else.’ Others obligingly begin turning out more and more. The problem with a lack of ending is that we can never form a completed opinion about the artwork we’re experiencing and enjoying. Without a final point, we can never say if it’s been any good or not. I think that’s partially why artists shy away from them.” — Peter Damien, from The Importance of Endings, in Book Riot
