This is one of my all time favoritees in the fiction section. It chilled me when i first read it because of all the real life parallels - It chills me even more now.

Ps i just noticed the ending is no longer here... wtf? :*(

I pulled the last few chapters down because I hand delusions of grandeur about rewriting the thing and publishing it.  No time for that now.  Editing up Overt Actions and writing a new story, plus life, have detracted from that.  I might do the revamp on this after Nov, depending on which way the elections go and whether or not they let me bring my laptop into the gulag.

If you need the last chapters send me an email and I'll launch them your way.

I would like to bump this story and bring it back the forum's attention.

This story remains one of my favorite here of all time (of ALL time ). Yes even more than Lights Out!

Not only do I believe it was a great story at the time It was written, but especially now more than ever in light of the last couple months.

Give it a read if you havent already, while you're waiting for an update to The Spartan's Last March!

Thanks.  I'm humbled by that compliment.

The political situation that has and still is unfolding was of course my motivation to write that.

Just finished page 1 and loved it.



Page 2, on the other hand has the text so fucked up that it would be easier for me to write my own novel than read this one.

Then don't read it... But I assure you you'll be missing out. I've re-read this story a couple of times.

I'd love to read it. Unfortunately, it appears to be almost totally illegible after page 1.

Looks like the formatting got fixed.  Give it another shot.

Check out The Spartan's Last March too when you get the chance.

I just recently found out about this story and am only on Chap. 13.  This story was written 4.5 years ago but could easily only be a year away.  Wow.  Great writing and character building.

Just giving this great story a bump after rereading it (for the third time) and for members that may not have read it yet.

Thanks for bumping this back to page one.  I just finished reading it for the first time and really enjoyed the story.

So J.G. Did you ever finish "An Uneasy Peace" read the first part here, then bought 'Overt Actions' great reads.
Would like to see what you've got the aging warrior up to Lt. Col. Sean Bastle.

Thanks

I have not started "An Uneasy Peace," yet.  Just not at the point in my life where I am ready to write that one yet.

Is there a way to read this whole story without being online?  Is it on amazon or anything?  

I am a fan of this author, and I believe I've read everything by him that is available except this.  I can do it online, it is just easier if I can download it and have it all in one piece.

I still wonder if we are ever going to hear Nickey-Lee's story.  A back story or what happens after he completes his mission would be awesome.

I'd also love to hear how LT. Col Bastle got to where he and the country are when those stories start.

Is  "Across the Scimitar" tied in to either of these story lines?  Seems a bit like it could be a prequel to either one.

Thank you for all of these awesome stories!

I agree, I've read all the rest of the story and have it on my kindle. I really want this part on there too, is there anyway to get you to put it up for download?

I was wanting to recommend this book to a reading group I’m in but just discovered it is not on Kindle when I would have sworn it was.  I have bought everything you have published that I know of and I would buy A Flip Of The Coin if you put it on Kindle.

I really think you would sell more of the latter parts of the story if you published part 1.

I never posted it there because I never even attempted to edit it.  Regardless, I'll have it on Kindle within the week.

Should be there now.

Buyer Be Ware:  It was not professionally edited, so there are more than a few grammatical and formatting errors.

Yeah, here is a blast from the past.

Reread this not to long ago and was amazed at how well it has aged.  Most fictions of this sort seem trite and completely ridiculous with the passing of time and a changing current situation.

This is still strikingly relevant and a pretty engaging read.

Also, the whole series is still (surprisingly) on Amazon Kindle

Is there anywhere to get the story in its entirety? Or do you have other works available for purchase?

I fell into the rabbit hole reading stories here, and I'd love to read yours. I just don't want to get 90% done and the story ends
