    Epilogue

    Not a review as such, but just a reassurance to Gandalf that CJ has not been swallowed by a whale. He is perfectly OK.
  2. There's more than a little of the grammar nerd in me.
  3. You're confusing adverbs and adjectives in the article. Adverbs qualify verbs, adjectives or other adverbs. Adjectives describe nouns. So, when your character is wearing dirty jeans and a ripped hoodie, "dirty" and "ripped" are adjectives. In English, adverbs typically end in "-ly", so it could be raining heavily, or someone could walk briskly. It could be raining very heavily where both "very" and "heavily" are adverbs - "heavily" qualifying "raining" and "very" qualifying "heavily". LF
  4. It was all right for CJ with the vast GA expense budget to cover his travels... ;-)
  5. Congratulations, CJ. Well deserved - so much more so than all those scurrilous rumours about cliff-hangers...
  6. I would not have guessed if you had not mentioned this. Your use of English is considerably better than many for whom it is a first language...
  7. I have been exchanging emails with CJ today and he is fine.
  8. It's got to be quite likely that the cartel might have someone in Carnarvon, though I don't think it's Grundig. It's an isolated port, so ideal, I'd have thought, for importing their product in small boats loaded at sea. Whoever the contact was would be able to pass lots of information on. It's a small town - word spreads.
  9. Why should CJ change his ways now? Surely "the" epilogue will, sooner or later, become at least a three-parter?
  10. I'd like to know when/how often they go back to Australia to see Trevor's family and Shane's friends. Maybe they could live on Kookaburra whilst Atlantis is being rebuilt...?
  11. I forget the exact sequence but I think I posted a comment on one of CJ's stories as my first ever posting and CJ sent me a PM welcoming me to the forum. We swapped PMs for a while and then email addresses and discussed a wide range of things outwith his stories as well as the tales themselves. We agree on almost nothing, as far as I can tell, but we have some great discussions. You can imagine, though, that it can be quite scary arguing with someone like CJ - his level of research is not confined just to his story-writing. Over time, I sent him a few corrections I'd noticed in some of the
  12. Not to mention catching all those places where "it's" should be "its" and vice versa...
  13. Interesting, Nick. I use both of these techniques when Zeta-reading (whatever that is) the chapters. Firstly, I read through whatever CJ sends me. There are only occasional catches from the spell-checker, which is hardly surprising as CJ also has a spell-checker. Generally, the first read is at normal speed as I, like everyone else, just want to find out what happens next. Secondly, I reformat the whole document to, usually, comic sans. I find it makes the differences between letters more obvious and it also shifts the line breaks to different places. This second read is much slower - I'm
  14. One thing I think nobody's picked up on is that the title's a quote from Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan. Not sure of the significance, though. Khan came to a sticky end in the film, though.
