Here's Raptor with the introduction to the latest in the series :
HTL continues with the third chapter of "Further Down The Spiral" Part Three. As you saw in the previous chapters, the Forge's pilots and crew had taken on the enemy dreadnought in a pitched battle, while the Captain had been imprisoned on charges of murder. Now, events come to a head both on and off the ship, as the Valley Forge plunges towards the disaster that Jed Wright alluded to in his meeting with the reporter. This chapter is written by all the Valley Forge writers, so please send any and all comments to them.You can read this chapter here.
On another note, the mailing of HTL chapters via the Aces Club mailing list has been rescheduled slightly, so that they will go out every three weeks rather than fortnightly for the next four or so mail outs. This will allow me to align the chapters on the mailing list with those published here, so we can start publishing stories simultaneously on both within the next three months.
Last, but certainly not least, the new HTL archives hosted by the CIC are now up. The new domain, htl.solsector.net, will be the permanent home of the archives. It will eventually be the repository for all published HTL chapters, and for now holds all chapters up to the end of FDTS 2. You can access the archives at http://htl.solsector.net.
