As you've probably guessed by now, the latest HTL chapter is here.. and when you're done reading, Raptor has something he'd like a bit of feedback on.
Hey all, Raptor here.
You can let him know here.
HTL continues with the third and final part of Scraps Of Honour 14. As you
saw in the last chapter, a flight of Border Worlds fighters from the
reserves was rescuing a Tanfen VIP transport under attack by Nephilim
fighters. During the fight though, Major Jack DeVille finds himself right in
the path of a torpedo. This chapter picks up from there, and is written by
Nick "Chaeronea" Deane. Please send any and all comments to Nick at
firstname.lastname@example.org, not to me.
The story is at: http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~theraj/archives/ch192.htm
Also, I've been thinking about the shape of the new HTL site, and I've had
that I would like your feedback on. As I said before, the site is meant to
showcase the HTL project, but I want it to be more than simply an archive.
I'm thinking of adding a section called "The Reading Lounge". The name
deliberately harks back to the old Aces Lounge, and I want that section to
have a similar feel. I'm thinking of having a "Meet The Aces" subsection
there (an intro to the Aces and what we do), a "Best Of The Aces" (showcase
of non HTL writing), a message board where Aces can interact with each other
and people from outside the club, and maybe a forum for news and views. What
do you guys think? What else would you like to see? Let me know, and I'll do
my best to make it happen.
