Stories in a series (universe)



I noticed this issue tonight and I'm not sure if it is a bug or not.

When you look at Banadin's author page there are two stories listed as being in the Ninth Grade 1958- 1959 universe.

But the stories have a (2) and a (3) implying that they are the 2nd and 3rd stories in a series.

When I look at the Ninth Grade 1958- 1959 universe page it only lists the two stories.

Why do they have a (2) and a (3) if there are only two stories in the series?


Your answer may be waiting on Fine Stories. The first Richard Jackson story was about his summer vacation. That story, on SOL, was included as a preface to the Ninth Grade story. As the summer vacation story was short and made a great introduction to Ninth Grade there was almost no pushback that I am aware of from Banadin's readers except yours, about the strange (2) left over in the story description. Be happy, you didn't miss anything. And I understand there is another Richard Jackson sequel coming, one of these days (or months, or maybe years) once Banadin has written it.

I have a special interest in Richard Jackson, we were born the same year and have the ideal first name for a guy, Rich and Hard.


From Fine Stories Author Banadin: (the third one listed.)

saves you the trip to Fine Stories.

Has anyone gotten a fine for reading Fine Stories?

Tenth grade Richard Jackson

On occasion I receive emails asking about the next installment of the Richard Jackson Saga. This week I got twenty two of them. So here is an update. Not what you really want to hear.

I am going through some sort of writers block. Not the story. I have that outlined, major events identified, some of those events written. What I can't seem to force myself to do is sit down and type it out.

Now add that to the fact I have been very busy in my work life. Some people can work on airplanes and hotel rooms. I have never been able to do that, except at a survival level (need expense reports submitted to get paid.)

I travel a lot in my job. As a quality auditor to the ISO standards my job is mildly interesting (at least to me.) Last night I got home from California where I was auditing a foreign language translation firm. Next week is Newport News for an ship builder (think air craft carriers.)

So I am having a hard time writing and excuses not to sitting right there. All that said the first chapter which more me is the hardest is almost done. Had to set the since and ensure continuity. I hope to have six chapters done before the end of the year and start posting early 2017.

So there it is, thank you for the interest. This writing venture was started to see if I could do it. Thank you for your validation.

It seems the author used the series system in an odd way. I don't know if he had something in the series before the two current stories.

Anyway, I fixed the series and now they're 1 and 2.

As far as I'm aware, the sequel number on stories in a series, at least, is automatically generated when you submit it, rather than created by the author. If that's indeed the case, he'd have to have asked an Admin to change the story order for him.


Or there initially was a story #1 in the series, and he subsequently had it removed.
