Novel

January 1st, 2009

I finally finshed the updated epilogue for Methuselah’s Daughter and posted Part Four, along with the Afterword and the Zsallic language glossary (based on proto-indo european and purely the creation of the Reverend Paul Burgess). So, it’s all there. For free, even- I may never get around to massaging it into the right format for Lulu.com.

Think of it as my good-bye to 2008 and hello to 2009.

All of it is right here.

    I hate to tell you this, but I only was able to read about half of the first section.

    ‘Where the Sidewalk Ends’ breaks off in mid paragraph after this phrase:

    “This is much nicer with nicotine to soothe the jagged edges. “There were castes within the clan. There was the chief and his woman, and their children at the top, and their mates joined those. There was no hard and fast rule about the woman joining the man’s clan. It was simply worked out informally when the match was made. So there were”

    I say this is about half of the post as my scroll bar was about halfway down the screen when the text box was covered by the grey frame which ran to the bottom of the page on screen.

    Very frustrating for both of us, I’m sure!

    I was visiting Methuselah’s Daughter off and on for a long time. I never did read all of it, but I liked it and am looking forward to being able to read the book. 😉

    Let me know if you want a screenshot of what I see.

    Good luck!

    After looking around the sit some more, I see that I can buy a downloadable version of the book, so I’ve done that. I’ll be able to get my fix after I install Acrobat Reader 9 on my Vista laptop.

    I do hope that it’s an inadvertent ‘teaser’, though.

    Hmm, my mistake for not looking at the whole thing up front- I’ll have to scroll through it and see if there are any other gotcha’s in there, so thanks for the heads up.

    By the way- the downloadable version is Second Edition- not many changes, but 3rd Edition is cleaner and I corrected some truly cringe-inducing slip-ups.

    Glad you enjoy the story 🙂
