Chapter 32-outro says “end of chapter 22” instead of 32. Everything else in 32 is pl ok!

And chapters 33-37 are PL OK! I feel like the author ran out of steam a bit, or I’m too expectant of a bigger climax from modern books, but the final confrontation was a bit of a let down. Overall I enjoyed it though, I really enjoyed your reading of it. Please do let me know if you start another one and need a DPL!

Well, gee...thank you. As it happens, I just launched a shorty that does need a good DPL. If you would like the job, it's yours.

I'll fix chapter 32 outro. Good catch. :thumbs:

Re Tickencote, I agree the windup was pretty ho-hum. I considered doing another book by Le Queux, but it ends the same way: get the treasure, marry the girl, live happily ever after. :roll:

Need a good tragedy to spice it up. :lol: :lol:

Wow, great timing! Good news, Steven. I just heard from Carolin. She did write the description, and we can use it. :thumbs:

Looks like this will go into the catalogue tomorrow!

Well, since that was a simple little spot PL, I went ahead and checked it myself, so that I could get going on the cataloguing process. Nice job, both of you! :D
