Artie's Time Of Arrival should suit; He's gone from here and cleared out his ASSTR site, and a third-party archive has also gone, but I've found a copy of TdOA here

Don't neglect Three Square Meals or Flight of the Code Monkey if you are looking for LONG. There is another about a computer geek in New York and tons of seemingly related females, but I can't remember the name of it offhand.

It's available electronically at the Baen Publishing website in the Empire from the Ashes Compendium.

Yes it is dead tree, but is also Baen. It is one of David Weber's stories on the Mission of Honor CD.

Another site for the cd's and as far as I can tell its more complete is: http://hell.pl/szymon/Baen/

It even lists the ones which have been deleted on other sites. Although this time around I made sure to d/l all of them since I have enjoyed many of the books already but as I have found out the dead tree books can fall apart with age. Possibly because they are paperback versions with a lower quality of binding.

THANK YOU!! I've got a dozen of those CD's on hand but he's got the ones I missed{grin}! I've had most of the books in dead tree versions, some multiple copies due to them wearing out but when I moved cross-country I had to leave behind about 5 cubic meters of paperbacks.

This quote probably fits just about all real readers. Every time I moved over the years, I always left who knows how many books behind. Plus of course all those paperbacks that fell apart. (usually the ones I just kept reading over and over again) Its funny how many of those books are included in those cd's. Of course there are many that I just wasn't interested in reading as well.

There are Torrents of all of the CDs as well.

... to an unfinished version of the tale.

As I have said before I don't, on the whole, believe in capital punishment but would happily make an exception for people who post unfinished versions of their stories. As a result of following the referenced link, I am tempted to make another exception: for people who, without including the appropriate warning, post links to the said unfinished versions.

I like a completed story just as much as the next mcguy, but this is way too strong. There are a number of fantastic unfinished stories out there that I've greatly enjoyed. It can be argued that no story is truly unfinished or (or even finished for that matter, which explains the number of stories with sequels). The story ends where it ends.

I've gotten a number of requests to add to the My Former Succubus series and I may eventually do so (as I have unpublished parts that I may be able to rework into a third installment), but just because there are plot elements left to resolve, does not mean that they have to be resolved.

As far as I'm concerned, whatever an author is willing or able to share, we should be happy to receive. Yes, having a definitive ending can make a story a bit more satisfying for many readers, but it should not be an all or nothing proposition.

Just as an interesting aside, you could consider my "The Cuckoo's Progeny", though, in a twist, the MC gets alien technology without realizing it (i.e. they don't confirm it was alien technology until the very end of the book). Though I realize that's not the type of book you were looking for. You were more looking for the "I Won a Spaceship" type of story.

... to an unfinished version of the tale.

That story was never finished.
He was talking about what was coming up right up to the time when he announced he was stopping writing and pulling all his stories. This was after he had a stroke. Gina Maria Wylie continued after she had a stroke, Artie carried on for a while but then made the following posting:

This website and ALL ITS CONTENTS are GOING TO DISAPPEAR before the end of December 2011.

Why?

Lots of reasons, many of them personal, but among them: I'm getting old, I'm running out of time, I have more important things I need to do with what little time I have, some parts aren't fun anymore, I'm not sure who I'm writing for, and a bunch of shit like that.

You're just going to yank the whole damn thing down?

Yup. If you want a copy of something, better get it now. If the site was still up, I'd be sorely tempted to go in and fix things, add just a little bit, just this once. Cold fucking turkey.

But what about... And... Aren't you going to... Don't you feel you owe your readers anything?

Get used to it. Things change. Still have your recipt? Drop by and I'll refund your money.

Really? Just like that?

Yup. Came really close to just doing it, but decided to put up a warning first. It's been a trip.

You're not going to stop writing, are you?

Of course not. I'll stop writing when I stop breathing. But the writing I do will be for me, when I want to do it.

So you'll be back?

Maybe after a year or so. I'll archive everything, but don't hold your breath.

What about e-mail?

Haven't fully decided. Do not count on replies from me. That hotmail account gets about a hundred pieces of spam a day, thankfully most of them filtered out. I'll probably hold on to the account just in case.

Well, how about xxx and I take it over and maintain it for you?

Nope, see above. I'm going to put it in a small box, nail the box closed, and put it on a shelf. That's the plan.

You're serious about this?

Oh yeah. It's been a trip -- I've learned a lot, and had a lot of fun, but it's time to move on.

Namaste--


There is no finished version, unless he has one on his hard drive.

Nope (and have no idea of what any of that stuff means, except for yoghurt which I don't really care for and sandals that I don't wear).

I just appreciate all of the hard work it takes just to write a halfway decent story (let alone some of the brilliant stories found on SOL). Often things in RL have a way of making it hard for an author to write. I'd rather read an unfinished tale of high quality than a crappy story with a definitive ending.

BTW, You quoted more of yourself than me in your reply to mine. Just sayin'.

Sorry for the late response. The sequel is already written, and will show up on SOL as soon as I have another book nearly ready to publish. I'm currently working on the final sequel, but the plot isn't well outlined, so I'm playing it fast and loose, which takes a bit more work.

Finished/unfinished. Artie's site can still be visited by using the Wayback machine on http://archive.org/web/

I don't remember if I found epub versions but I did find text versions of his stories archived just before he pulled them.

Happy hunting!
