    Hello ,I thought I'd start this thread to ask small questions about the series.

    My first Question is ;  In one of the earlier books the companions find themselves in Britain ,Which book was this ?

    Q 2. During their stay in Britain Doc is recognized by someone ,was it ever explained how that happened ?

    Q 3. How is it that as Jak ages he doesn't outgrow his razor blade jacket? All the other characters change their outfits as the series goes along but not Jak.

    Hi there,

    Lets see if I can assist here:

    1 the book is #35 Bitter Fruit by Mel Odom, not one of the best pieces of his work but far better than some of the newer tripe they have published. The characters in Outlanders visit England as well in a far better story arc.

    2 that would be "Long Johnson" -I wonder how he got his name And it is never explained how he comes to know Doc.

    3 I think its the same reason Krysty's boots have never worn out, characters have the same weapons, same clothes etc. etc. Because we now have a rotating door system of (mostly so called) writers working on the series they have to leave the characters exactly as they found them at the close of each book.

    hope this helps,

    Jim

    Thanks for the great answers .

    Q3 . You make a lot of sense thanks . I wonder if that means Doc's Lemat will stay a cartridge gun or if it will be back to a black powder & cap gun again ?

    I seem to recall reading one time where Krysty had to get her boots resoled (it could've been one of the early books, I'm not sure). They just don't mention it because it's not really important.

    Do you know who MADE Krysty's boots? We have been told in quite an early book...

    Here's my take on the coat thing.  Even if he did outgrow the coat, or it wore out it's likely he'd get a replacement and sew in new razors etc to make it even more dangerous.

    Baz: She got them in the Alaska redoubt, in Red Holocaust

    Grant: In Rider, Reaper, Ryan notes that despite being a year or so older, Jak doesn't appear to have grown at all (i.e., he's still 5'4"), but he looks to have gained 10 pounds or so (from his wife's cooking). He likely lost most of that weight after rejoining the companions - constant travel, along with irregular meals, will do that.

    Correct.

    If I recall way, way back on a previous incarnation of this site, we had a quiz and I posed this self same question. Again only you and Gitana (what ever became of her?) got the answer correct!

    Boy that does bring back memories. I wonder where these folk are now and what they are up to?

    Gitana
    Eduardo
    Doc
    Den
    Chris Chase

    All good folk and all nothing but good memories for me.

    Kerrick, I got my knickers in a twist, as they say, and stalked off, never to return. But had a change of heart. So here I am again.

    Twisty knickers is a pernicious problem. I am sometimes plagued with it myself.
