Here's Raptor with the introduction to chapter 144:
As I said in my post on the HTL forum, we had to stop publishing HTL chapters on the CIC because the Archives hadn't been updated for a while. I *really* didn't want to end HTL's association with the CIC though, not after working with them to publish HTL chapters for over an year. After a little
amateur web page building with the latest version of MS Word though (thank you, Mr Gates!), I've figured out a way to put together basic webpages for the chapters without taking too much time away from writing and co-ordinating. The pages are nothing fancy, but they get the job done. The upshot is that you'll be able to enjoy your regular dose of Border Worlds propaganda....er, HTL stories, at the CIC once again.
You can read chapter 144 here.
HTL continues with the second part of Scraps of Honour 11, "Till Death Do Us
Party". In the last chapter, the Confederation and Border Worlds reserve
forces had thrown a "getting to know ya" Valentine's Day party for their
pilots and crews. Everyone is looking forward to a great time, all the more
so because this will be their last chance to cut loose before the Nephilim
jump in. This chapter is written by Nick "Chaeronea" Deane, so please send
any and all comments to him at email@example.com, not to me.
