    What year would you have them go to? And how would they get back?

    The time table is wide open, with boundless possibilities for them to get back. 

     

    I'd like to see something akin to the 20's or 30's, having the companions battling Al Capone and his thugs. Time travel in the Operation Chronos concept can easily have white coats having gone back in time to place a mat-trans hidden somewhere in Chicago. (Where the original author placed the Chronos project anyway, so it would fit like a glove. See Deathlands: Fury's Pilgrims I believe for that.)

    ...But claims to a fallen elk get ugly and Ryan is forced to chill another hunter, the self-proclaimed king of the Granite Highlands, over the meat. Soon the hunters become the hunted as the dead man's widow gives chase, armed with predark tanks and heavy artillery.


    I laughed so much when I read this, I know face and revenge is everything to the bad folk of D/L but to have predark tanks and artillery at your disposal and have to argue over a dead elk...

    Story lines are getting sillier and sillier as time goes on, I think its time to call it a day with this series. Either that or hand it over to one author who can develop a consistent storyline that develops book for book (a la LJ DL or original OL).

    )3az, LJ could knock off a book in six weeks if he had to, which is why he could handle the number of books the publishing schedule required each year. Other writers aren't as prolific or have commitments to other publishing houses.

    GE will keep churning out the books  as long as the series is profitable.

    Yep, that just about sums it up:

    "sod the quality", just keep churning them out between all those other books you write. the plebs dont care so long as you include big tits, a few gratuitous head shots and half a dozen "fireblasts!!"

    Yeah, but if you have enough people to crew the things you must have enough food to feed them...

    ...or is it a Jesus moment where this baron can feed the whole ville on an elk and 7 bread rolls

    Most of the head shots are gratuitous, and what's wrong with big tits?
    Believe it or not, I just edited a DL with nary a "Fireblast!"

    That would be one bread roll. 


    And it may have been a big big giant MUTIE elk.

    I can imagine JB kidding Ryan at the end of the book...

    Jb: "Hey Ryan, you never once said-"

    Ryan: "Don't say it!!!"

    In the series' defense, this is Pollotta we're talking about. 'Nuff said.
