  1. As noted before, I've been writing an original novel on the side. It's a superhero / fantasy themed work that incorporates Egyptian mythology. The book in now up at Amazon, in both E-Book format and paper. You can find it at: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=ka-ru+book+one The series has its own website which is also about to go live. So, when that's up, I'll post the link here as well and all future information will be announced on that site. Here is the synopsis: "Four thousand years ago: three deities come together in Egypt for one final, cataclysmic duel. In the bloody showdown that ensues, the newly born goddess Ma’Vest makes the ultimate sacrifice to rid the world of the hateful Set, before his power and scope can grow beyond any hope of containment… Today: The western world suffers under religious despotism. All other faiths have been eradicated without mercy. Anyone daring to defy the Scrolls of Luset are arrested or executed by police officers that enforce Holy Law. Yet, the war of the gods is far from over and soon the finale battle will begin—once again using superhuman soldiers that carry the living spirits of their masters. It is a conflict destined to reshape our reality and decide the fate of humanity’s collective soul…" Another note: reviews are of course very important, especially at this beginning stage. I can arrange a free copy in exchange for anyone who is willing to produce an honest review. Thanks!

    Preemptive Maneuvers

    This might qualify as old news, but Chapter 1 of Preemptive Maneuvers is now up at Trekbbs. PM is of course the conclusion to the Inth story arc that began in "The Double Edge".

    Preemptive Maneuvers

    I figured that since I'm so eager to run my mouth about UT business, I should at least take the time to update my own thread. Just saying. So, there will be a bit more of a delay before work resumes on the rewrite of "Preemptive Maneuvers". The next chapter should go up at Trekbbs sometime in the next few months. The delay is mostly due to the impending launch of my novel---an original work that I've been cobbling together for the last several years. Delivery is now only a few weeks away and I'm at the point of doing some last financial housekeeping chores that are required before I put it up at Amazon. So PM will be delayed somewhat, but as excuses go, I guess this isn't the worst one to have. While this forum is really for my fan fic work, I'll still post an announcement here with links when the time comes. There will also be a synopsis. The theme is superhero fantasy with a supernatural flavor.

    And might I say that it's nice to see you posting updates again. Now, once our search parties find Sam, all will be well again.
  6. Ah...The Entropy Effect...one of my all time favorite Trek novels. I heartily recommend it to everyone!

  10. CeJay, I saw that you updated the main UT page with "Preemptive Maneuvers". Much obliged! And I thank you also for keeping everyone's current projects front and center. You and Michael really keep this site humming, which benefits us all by generating constant traffic.

    The Double Edge

    Chapter 12, the final chapter of "The Double Edge" is now complete! Currently posted at Trekbbs. I'm afraid I'm behind on posting the last two chapters to Ad Astra but I should have that done over the next week or so. In the meantime, you can now view the complete story at Trekbbs. As mentioned in my last post, the arc will conclude with "Preemptive Maneuvers". This will be followed by "Inevitability". From there, we'll move forward on the timeline to finish "Hydra's Arrow", an aborted tale that takes place well after the war and concerns UT's "Refugee Crisis / Vanguard" event. Finally, we have a series of "episodes" that will fall under the "Gamma Year" heading. These will detail Aubrey and company's adventures in the Gamma Quadrant during the year leading up to "Treacherous Waters". Whew. Also, watch this space for word on when my non-trek novel goes online: "Mankat: Book One, The Overthrow". Wait a minute. What the hell am I thinking? I can't do all this stuff! Panic attack is over, I'm all good now. Just need a few pills.... :0

    The Double Edge

    Chapter 11 is now complete and up at Trekbbs. I should have the full chapter uploaded to Ad Astra sometime this weekend. Chapter 12 will be the final installment of this story, but the over all arc will complete in "Preemptive Maneuvers".

    The Double Edge

    Yes, "The Double Edge"! Chapter 8 is now up at both Ad Astra and Trekbbs. So, I've been away for a while working on an original novel. (I have delusions of grandeur) It's now in the hands of a proofreader, so I have some writing time to play with. As promised, I'm back to completing Intrepid stories that were left hanging lo, those many years ago. I think I've struck the right balance in my writing schedule now, so I do plan to finish DE and then move on to the follow up: "Pre Emptive Maneuvers". The original version of PE doesn't need much tweaking, so I'm expecting the rewrite process to go faster. These installments are important ones for the series, and the events have been referenced in tales that came afterward. So I think they're worth finishing. Besides, I hate leaving unfinished work laying around. About my own novel, I'd like to publicly acknowledge and thank my UT colleague Cejay. His work as content editor was invaluable. I was left with a much stronger book than what I started with. So much so, the rough draft is practically an embarrassment to me now. I will have him to thank for any success that comes from this project. More updates as they come.
