It's interesting to contemplate this in light of Coots in the North which Ransome started in the summer of 1943. It's unclear whether he eventually ran out of steam on CN by itself or whether Myles North's plot proposal in 1944 that turned into Great Northern? simply derailed CN (and maybe the Gamekeeper book as well?).
Perhaps if AR already had as a goal to find a conslusion for Disk, the the GN plot offered a better opportunity. Still, CN was shaping up to be the ultimate synthesis of the series (or perhaps he was balking at so obvious a completion?)
