Thank Jeff. I know it wasn't much but more chapters are in the pipeline along with the last two chapters of Episode 2 of Winds of Change.

Alright. I'm hoping to had the next chapter of Scorpion out by the end of May, depending on how everything workout. Plus I should also start posting my revisited original series story here if anyone is like the original Galactica.

Hi Allen I have had a look and it looks great, unfortunately I am having a great deal of difficulty with the grammar, may I respectfully suggest you try and spell check with Microsoft word or a similar programme before posting as I feel the difficulty in reading it may be putting people off continuing to read - please don't be offended, the context and theme of the work you are doing is excellent however and is worthy of praise

Ivanho, first I want to said I'm not offended. Second, however if you didn't read my author notes I mentioned not having an editor. Now I do used Microsoft Word but it can't caught everything - those I thought the spelling was alright. So while I appreciate your opinion and responses. I had been working on my stories since 2009 without much success because of the inability to find one editor. So I respectfully will said my current view is that I know the grammar is rough and that some peoples will not read my story because of how rough the grammar is but since I been unable to find a editor for years, I'm not going keep wasting time. My stories is going to takes several years already to complete and delaying it on the hope of finding an editor (which could never happen) is not desirable for me any longer.

This is actual either the third of fourth times I had posted my story before starting over. Each time I took it down partly because of grammar. I don't want to be working on just one story for my entire life. I do have another story ideas I want to tell.

So if I lost a few readers or even majority because of the grammar, right now that is just how it is going to be. I wish I didn't had a grammar learning disability but I do. So I simple have to hope that peoples can forgive or overlook the grammar. Because I honestly think I had a really good story but I'm not a great writer. Aegir is really the first piece of literature I had ever written. I had wrote blogs, papers, etc. during school but never something like Aegir or the scale of the story.

I glad you like the context and theme. I actual get more negative feedback on that than I do on my grammar. One of ex-editor left because she disagree with how I write Arthur.

Thank you Ivanho,
Allen

I want to say again that I like very much your stories, Allen.
And I think I have a big advantage while reading them as a non-native english reader regarding grammar and such. Of course, I see some "oddities :wink: " in the phrasing sometimes but that doesn't bother me.

Kasero, what "oddities" are you talking about? I want to make clear something I phrase thing in a way not to spoilers thing. So if I had Arthur says, "X" compare to saying the same thing just with "Y" then it won't or hopefully won't spoilers future plot point.

I had posted Chapter 2, Episode 1 of Battlestar Scorpion. Please note unlike Aegir each chapter doesn't automatic changes date. Chapter 2 and 1 of Episode 1 are both on the same day, the fall of the Fall.

I just posted Winds of Change, Episode 2 - Chapter 8. Chapter 8 is the second Vignette and the first of two that will be posted before the release of Episode 3 - Chapter 1.

I'm sorry for taking so long but I hope peoples are actual reading and enjoying my story. Feel free to replies or messages me. All feedback is welcome and it helped me to keep writing.
