    I have been working on novelising the DS9 Season 10 episodes written by lvsyx888 (with his permission and feedback).
    See here for those episodes: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=143895

    My first "novel" encompasses the story lines from episodes 1-3.

    I have greatly expanded the narrative with many added sections while sticking to the basic story line.

    I am just finishing my final proof-reading and fixing and, after running past lvsyx888 again, I will be looking for some brave souls who would be willing to act as beta-readers .
    I need people who would be brutally honest with me.
    I can't promise to incorporate every change recommended but I will take every suggestion seriously.

    Be warned that it is 22 chapters and over 60,000 words long. There will still be typos I'm sure but I have performed a full proof read so hopefully I will have reduced them to a minimum.

    By pure chance this is the first day I've come back to look in the FF forum in months - just in time to find this!

    I myself have read through what theblitz has read, and he's done some damn good work. There are parts where he has found slightly different interpretations of what I'd written or come up with some additional twists or ideas, so it felt kind of like reading a new book even though I'd plotted it myself.

    I hope you enjoy!

    Edited to add: Oh and by the way, I've just finished writing episode 4 of Season 11...

    So you are continuing with the next season after all. I remember you telling me by email a few months ago but wasn't sure if you were.

    Yep, got it all planned out. Just a matter of finding the time to write the bugger now.
