Eternal Doctrine part II
« on: August 17, 2015, 05:32:39 pm »

(This is a copy of the post at PoNaF forum)
After a productive July, the second part of Eternal Doctrine is ready. This part contains chapters 7-12. You can get the PDF from here:

http://koti.mbnet.fi/tibe9mm/Eternal_Doctrine_part_II.pdf

For those who are not familiar with the subject:
Eternal Doctrine is a direct sequel to Groombridge Log. Together these books give rebirth to the story of Star Control 2 as a novel. In case you have missed the subject entirely, the first novel, Groombridge Log, can be purchased from most online bookstores, including Amazon, both as an e-book and a printed copy. The PDF can also be found free of charge at http://www.star-control.com/hosted/Groombridge/Groombridge_Log.pdf

As said earlier, Eternal Doctrine starts off exactly where Groombridge Log ended. The first six chapters of Eternal Doctrine can be found at http://www.star-control.com/hosted/Eternal/Eternal_Doctrine_part_I.pdf

And since topics without an image are boring, here's one:

Oooh, the reveal of the Groombridge Log is... rather surprising. Altogether this was an interesting read.

I see at least one more conditional phrase that's not correctly constructed - it's "If noun would have verbed, noun would have verbed" but it should be "If noun had verbed, noun would have verbed". (The one I noticed is on page 30, not sure if there are others.)

Page 78: "the other one on Lydia’s head and the other one on her back" - you probably want to replace the first "the other" with "one".

This is just a thought and not a correction, but I wonder if it would be better to use the term "plasma" for the Thraddash's exhaust - flames in space strikes me as really weird since there's no air.

Or there's some form of solid oxidizer/fuel mixture formed as a combustion product in the afterburner! (Like soot, only flammable in the vacuum of space.) Easy to imagine those little puffs as clouds of flaming dust, isn't it?

Hmm, maybe!

Page 78: "the other one on Lydia’s head and the other one on her back" - you probably want to replace the first "the other" with "one".
...wait no, just remove the first occurrence of "the other".
