Reactions and Reviews: Issue 13

There are five ASJ stories—three of which I wrote. One of the others is a crossover with High Chaparal. That one bothered be because the author lifted great chunks of the plot from 'Twenty-one Days to Tenstrike'. I like that show, but I would hope a writer would be more individual. The other ASJ story is interesting, but I thought the writing style needed more editing. The sentences were a little hard to figure out. The story was well researched, though. [1]
